Summary and Info
Authors Sarah Cook, Steve Macaulay and Hilary Coldicott offer a solid, reliable roadmap for navigating the twisted trails of corporate change initiatives. This comprehensive presentation is based on the authors' combined 40 years of consulting and change-facilitation experience. The book provides a wealth of self-diagnostic tests, interactive exercises and checklists to help you tackle the practical mechanics of introducing organizational change from all four compass points: business, politics, emotions and the spirit. The volume demonstrates little patience with the self-serving "practical" case studies that are 'de rigueur' in business books. While one might applaud the authors' sense of economy in eliminating "how great we are" stories, their absence may also explain why the book comes across as just a tad dry. Change is a perpetually dynamic story line, so one expects its roadmap to bear a range of narrative hues, although the sound advice here is rare enough. We strongly recommend this volume - when you're lost, any good map is your friend. It doesn't have to be fancy as long as it includes a compass.
