Change Management Book
If you are thinking about implementing process improvement in your organization, you need this book.
This book treats the problems a change agent will encounter in a very practical way, encouraging the right kind of action, acting in a way that is congruent with organizational culture and leadership by example; and appropriately sensitive to the factors that determine success: identifying the need, linking problems to business goals, communicating the urgency, identifying and involving stakeholders (in particular, management at all levels), obtaining commitment, evaluating progress, identifying people-focused solutions, managing the change project, involving projects in testing and deploying the solution, monitoring the implementation, managing risks, measuring impact and making it visible, adjusting the solution and deployment as appropriate based on feedback and results, institutionalizing solutions, and leveraging the success and lessons learned.
Enjoy this book! Take it with you on your travels, put it under your
pillow at night, refer repeatedly to the map and other collateral
information, do whatever it takes to “soak in” the principles and
lessons learned! Visualize yourself in the story – how would you resolve
the situations? Have you encountered similar situations before? What
can you take away to make your organization more successful. Eat
chocolate, enjoy this book, learn! Read it through entirely once, but
then make it available for quick reference it in your work from time to
time when you need a good reference to guide you through the next phase
of process change.
