Urgency creates opportunity out of change
on 11 April 2009
We are all working with turbulence and uncertainty. If not, then consider you might be missing something... We are all faced with the need to address, manage and navigate change in our lives, careers, organisations or job. For all fans of Kotter (and who could not be?) this book is where the task of 'change' begins. Kotter tells us that urgency obviates linear process, detailed planning, slick presentations, cluttered calendars and hidden agendas. How many of us work in organisations displaying these misguided characteristics? This book is a guide to shedding low priority distractions and to embracing the core capability of urgent action as the first step toward achieving sustainable change. As ever with Kotter - this is an essential read.
