Book Description

17 July 2008
Why do some companies continue to be successful while others experience difficulties and even failure? In Leading Strategic Change, Eric Flamholtz and Yvonne Randle demonstrate that the key to long-term organizational success is the ability to adapt to and manage different types of change. Drawing on over 30 years' consultancy experience within major firms, they combine theoretical and practical models of organizational change, together with a new theory of leadership, to build a framework for understanding, planning, and leading change. The scope and value of this framework is then shown in relation to nine real-world case studies, ranging from relatively small companies (IndyMac Bank, Infogix) to large multinationals (Starbucks, Westfield). The focus throughout is to provide practical guidance to those concerned with managing and leading change in organizations. This book is an excellent guide to the many lessons to be learned about successful organizational change.

Product Description

Review

'Eric Flamholtz and Yvonne Randle bring both rigor and relevance to a challenge that looms for every manager. Their ability to distil the essence of the available research, the capacity to present this in a lucid and digestible way, the use of insightful case studies, and an ability to connect with readers, makes this a must-read book. Following an empirically sound framework, they present an integrated approach to change for those who seek to lead rather than manage this difficult process. The choice and use of case studies enables the reader to leverage the connection between the framework and associated ideas with what is required in their role as a change leader. The underlying key to the power of this book is that change is easier to lead than to manage. I commend this book to you if you seek to be a better leader!' Roger Collins, Professor of Management, Australian School of Business, The University of New South Wales

'Flamholtz and Randle have many years of experience in analyzing and felicitating change in companies. In this book they join this experience with a theoretical framework for understanding and leading successful organizational change. Together with ample evidence from a range of actual case studies, they conclude with a set of lessons and insights for leading change. CEOs and senior managers should have the book on their desks, and academic researchers will find it stimulating for further work in this important area.'

Leading Strategic Change: Bridging Theory and Practice
By: Dr. Eric G. Flamholtz and Dr. Yvonne Randle

In Leading Strategic Change: Bridging Theory and Practice the authors present examples of successful and unsuccessful change in real companies. They draw upon theory as well as their own research and expertise, presenting a practical "framework" for understanding, planning and leading change. Lessons are presented in nine case studies of companies of varying size and type all experiencing strategic or organizational change. The case studies (based on many former and current Management Systems clients) include:

Starbucks Coffee Company
Countrywide Financial Corporation
Tashman
Infogix
Indian Oil
Tata Steel
Westfield''s
Pardee Homes
Indy Mac Bank

The case studies in Leading Strategic Change: Bridging Theory and Practice provide the basis for insights and new theory for leading change.
