Change leadership focus, 19 Feb. 2006
There are many ways to describe what change is all about. This book by practising consultants has a leadership focus. It divides change into four target objects: individuals, teams, groups, organisations and leaders. The first half of the book explains some theory with models and the second half illustrates the value of the new knowledge with generic change scenarios.
Some the material is a little dated but does not detract from the point of the book. The analysis of change frameworks and models is particularly informative with good practical tips and how and when to apply them. If you aspire to be a change agent as a consultant or manager, see the chapter on Leading Change which is an excellent primary of leadership roles, styles and competencies. Readers will find the summary pages and checklists valuable in planning transformational change when chaos reigns and the key to success is managing people, teams and organisation all at the same time.
