More About the Author

Jurgen Appelo is pioneering management for creative organizations. Listed on Inc.com as a Top 40 Leadership Expert and one of 100 Great Leadership Speakers, Jurgen aims to have better management with fewer managers. Jurgen calls himself a creative networker. But sometimes he's a writer, speaker, trainer, entrepreneur, illustrator, manager, blogger, reader, dreamer, leader, freethinker, or... Dutch guy.

Jurgen is leading the global business network Happy Melly. Since 2008, he writes a popular blog at www.noop.nl, covering the creative economy, agile management, and personal development. He is the author of the book Management 3.0, which describes the role of the manager in agile organizations; he wrote the little book How to Change the World, which describes a supermodel for change management; and his last book is #Workout, which offers games, tools, and practices for everyone, because management is too important to leave to the managers.

After studying Software Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, and earning his Master's degree in 1994, Jurgen Appelo has busied himself starting up and leading a variety of Dutch businesses, always in the position of team leader, manager, or executive. Jurgen has experience in leading a horde of 100 software developers, development managers, project managers, business consultants, service managers, and kangaroos, some of which he hired accidentally.

Nowadays he works full-time managing the Happy Melly ecosystem, developing innovative courseware, books, and other types of original content. But sometimes Jurgen puts it all aside to spend time on his ever-growing collection of science fiction and fantasy literature, which he stacks in a self-designed book case. It is 4 meters high.

Jurgen lives in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) -- and in Brussels (Belgium) -- with his partner Raoul. He has two kids, and an imaginary hamster called George.

This is a small book (70 pages) which is well-written, fun, and easy to read. The core of the book is a combination of a number of ideas into a superidea, or as the author calls it, a supermodel. There are a few words of wisdom but overall I think the supermodel becomes too much of an intellectual construct. If you really are interested in changing the world I would point you in the direction of large group methods, such as Open Space Technology, Future Search, and World Café.

Jurgen Appelo has a refreshing and entertaining way of writing that makes this a light and fun read. In my opinion though the book is a bit lightweight, and is probably not going to change the world. He references the book 'Influencer - the Power to Change Anything' several times in his own book, and I would say that this would be a much better investment for your money. Sorry Jurgen. I like your style tho.

This is a great little book. Jurgen has summarised an approach - taken from all the current and existing thinking - to make change your organisation. It's not long and doesn't wander off track. An easy read but one which you'll find yourself going back to often to "find the right way".

Light Reading 9 May 2014

It is a fun light read but is light on concrete examples and too abstract. I cannot recommend investing the money or the hour to read it.
A Good Primer for Learning About the Process of Change 15 Jun. 2014
By Tom G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
New to change management 26 Sept. 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a great intro to becoming an agent of change! The topics covered provide clear, easy to understand concepts with creative visuals/acronyms that make them easier to remember. The framework for introducing and managing change just makes sense. Change Management 3.0 is approachable, simple, and engaging.

I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who's interested in change management, or wants to improve any complex social system.
