No fluff - provides a clear roadmap to implementing change 21 Jun. 2002
By Mike Tarrani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are involved in organizational change, including the introduction and rollout of new systems, steering company culture and/or reengineering this book is a gem. What sets it apart from other books on the subject is that it has no fluff - it jumps directly into what you need to do and how you need to do it to meet your change objectives.
What I like is the step-by-step approach that is process- and project-oriented. As a process the approach is provided as a change process model that meshes with the phases, activities and tasks that are required to effect the change. Each of these are explained as they are introduced in the book, and are summarized in the appendix. This makes it easy to quickly develop a work breakdown structure, determine resources and create a schedule using project management software.
I also like the way the authors sequence the activities and the thoroughness with which they examine details and provide advice, questionnaires and other useful information and tools to cut through the complexities of the change process.
Among the growing pile of books I have read on the subject this one is the most pragmatic and provides the clearest path to effectively planning for and implementing change.

Put This Roadmap in Your Organization's Glove Compartment 26 Mar. 2010
By Marty Jacobs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book builds on the theories and models in Beyond Change Management and breaks the transformational process down into three stages. Each stage is then further broken down into a number of phases to make what might otherwise feel like an overwhelming proposition more manageable. At the end of each chapter are a list of questions to answer and activities to undertake. This book is truly a roadmap worth purchasing for every organization's glove compartment.

A Must for Your Change Tooklit 6 May 2009
By Dana Ruberto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
These days corporate change or transformation is no longer a phase, it's a way of doing business. Many of us find ourselves steeped in change, often times without a clear picture of how to move forward. I'm always looking for great resources that help make the work of executing change easier. This is one of those books. Linda Ackerman lays out steps, tools and useful advice on how to get commitment and alignement, while using a proven approach to leading change.

I enjoyed the case studies, real-time tools and easy style of translating "consultant speak" into easy to execute methods.
