Nuria Ranking: #492 in Business
A source for anyone – from mid-level through to top-level executives – who needs to implement business decisions on time and within budget. The author illustrates that change needs to be made quickly, effectively, economically and with as little political fallout as possible.
His methods should teach today’s managers to negotiate these transitions by teaching them what distinguishes resilient people from those who suffer future shock and why major change is difficult to assimilate.
It teaches the key elements and the flow of events involved in human transition; what roles are central to change in organizational settings; how people become committed to change; why organizational culture is so important to a change’s success; and why teamwork is at the heart of achieving change objectives. Organizations need to start managing at the speed of change to meet today’s challenges with confidence. The book is based on case studies from leading international organizations such as AT&T and Pepsi-Cola.
