Product Description

About the Author

Jurgen Appelo is a writer, speaker, trainer, entrepreneur, illustrator, developer, manager, blogger, reader, dreamer, leader, freethinker, and… Dutch guy. Since 2008 Jurgen writes a popular blog at www.noop.nl, that covers topics including Agile management, software engineering, business improvement, personal development, and complexity theory. He is the author of the book Management 3.0: Leading Agile Developers, Developing Agile Leaders, which describes the role of the manager in Agile organizations. And he wrote the little book How to Change the World, which describes his new supermodel for change management. He is also a speaker who is regularly invited to talk at business seminars and conferences around the world. Jurgen is co-founder of the Agile Lean Europe network (for Agile & Lean thinkers and practitioners in Europe) and the Stoos Network (focusing on change agents for organizational transformation). 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, quality managers, service managers, and kangaroos, some of which he hired accidentally. Nowadays he works full-time developing innovative courseware, books, and other types of original content. But sometimes Jurgen puts it all aside to do some programming himself, or 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.

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 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.

How to Change the World is a small (and perfectly formed) extension to Jurgen's Management 3.0 book; and I believe you get the most out of this book after first reading the former.

It adopts the same principle: Jurgen loves to read, so let him so that for you and present you with a holistic, accessible and well-understood summary to digest.

The good thing is that you get a great practical introduction into change management, which really comes alive combined with the other principles in Management 3.0.

The less good aspect is if you already have walked the change management path, this may be a little simplistic for you. I can see how others might have this perspective, but I still found it extremely useful as a way to get information I needed without having to spend days reading drier books on the subject.

If you want to see how to put the Management 3.0 principles into immediate practice then check out the new #Workout book from Jurgen.

I am sure I'll me making use of this and the other books for years to come.

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".

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Introduction to an effective road for sustainable change 28 April 2014
By Henk-Jan van der Klis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Jurgen Appelo wrote this 90 pages booklet as a little guide for change managers. In How to Change the World – Change management 3.0 he mixes a couple of methods as models as a fresh mojito to his audience. Digging from his own experience as serial entrepreneur (failing for 15 years and finally successful) and social network meetings like the Stoos Network (January 2012), and the Agile Lean Europe Network, the guide is meant to tickle your brains to take small steps and make changes doable. The good-old Plan-Do-Check-Act model (a.k.a. Deming Cycle), Adoption Curve (a.k.a. Diffusion of Innovations), five environmental factors (information, identity, incentives, infrastructure and institutions), and a series of mind-benders (ability, knowledge, desire, awareness, reinforcement) make up Appelo’s Change Management 3.0 tookit. Like good innovations, Jurgen recommends to improve the good ideas and adapt then to your needs. Richly illustrated (Appelo himiself is a gifted illustrator) with both pictures and drawings, one-liners and quotes from modern management book authors, the book may serve as an imitating rite to digg further in text books, apply learnings in your organization and next changes. Don’t forget to inspect & adapt, share your experiences.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good reference booklet for change agents 6 May 2012
By Zsolt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is really good for those who just started to be a change agent, but has no idea how do it. I liked the four aspects of change management 3.0, their explanations and the related examples. The book is well structured, it starts with the basic and ends with advanced topics. The PDCA model is a good choice for starters the ADKAR model is really good for those who are looking for some practical/hands-on ideas. When I read the "Stimulate the Network" part I had different feelings. I understood that the model is important to introduce the last section, but for me the original paper on the "Diffusion of Innovations" was enough. If you never heard about it, then you are at the right place, because the chapter is better than the wiki page. Finally, the last chapter - "Change the Environment" - will make you think about your own environment and how you see the world. I was looking for something original from Jurgen - maybe it is not original, but a well mixed mockito cocktail - and the time I spent on reading it was worth it.

My favorite chapter was the "Desire", because it highlighted something I never considered - I don't want to spoil anything - and now I see certain situations differently.

I liked the book, but I gave only 4 stars, because for me there were too many references to ALE and Stoos and the Diffusion of Innovations was a bit redundant.

1.0 out of 5 stars 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.
