Business & management

With new technology, global markets and increased regulation, the pace and complexity of change is increasing, making it harder for organizations to maintain a competitive advantage. With the constant scrutiny on investments, it is imperative to learn how to easily and reliably deliver the benefits organizations need.

Centered around the author's Cycle of Change Model, "Managing Organizational Change" encourages readers to reflect on their current situation and use the tools and templates to assess whether their organizations are ready to embark on organization change. It looks at what traits organizations need to have in order to change -- culture, capacity, commitment, capability -- as well as what organizations have to do to be successful -- direct, drive, deliver, prepare, propagate and profit. It explains which type of resources are needed in order to achieve long term change, which tasks, roles and activities need to be in place, and crucially, how to lead during a time of great unease.
Featuring case studies, reflection questions, checklists, action planning and summaries, this book brings together all the different roles and functions within an organization that a leader has to manage effectively in order to bring about successful and sustainable organizational change.
