Solid and useful guide to change management
on 30 October 2012
It took me a while to realise how good this book is. I have had versions of it for some years and dipped into it on and off, but eventually I read it end-to-end (which the authors discourage), and really liked what I read. The authors have a great balance of theory and practical knowledge.
I like the first part of the book and the differentiation between individual, team and organisational change which is essential for the change practitioner to understand. Yet few writers really get to grips with this. I also like the way that they present theory and then give their views on it. However, I found the second half of the book on practical applications less convinving and at times somewhat rambling. There is good advice there, but there is also a certain amount of waffle.
