A Good Primer for Learning About the Process of Change
Reviewed in the United States on June 15, 2014
Ten years ago the practices and awareness of the skills necessary to ‘change’ successfully were little known but definitely were in use. If you need to influence others and know little about change management, organizational transformation, or some of the other buzz words involved with the process of change than this book would be a good place to start. It is a very short read, more of a primer actually, but it does introduce several basic change concepts along with recommendations for further learning. Think of this book as a flashing sign alerting and steering you toward the knowledge of change. For that purpose, I given Jurgen Appelo high marks. If you are already involved in the change process and aware of terms such as ADKAR, Adoption Curve, or the PDCA model you likely will get little more than an understanding of the author’s personal journey through failures to his current role as a successful change agent.
