Thanks to the popularity of the First Edition of Charting Change, I am privileged and excited to announce the early availability of the Second Edition of Charting Change, my best selling book on planning and executing organizational change and transformation used as a course book by universities around the world.
What was the impetus for the book and what’s new you might ask?
Executives are under escalating pressure to deliver increasing profits every quarter, while technology advances at an increasing rate. In such a pressure-cooker environment, leaders must hard-wire their organizations to be mindful of costs while simultaneously becoming more flexible and faster at planning and executing the change programs required by innovation and the shifting demands of the customer. The companies that successfully innovate and stay at the top of their industries have one thing in common – they learn fast and manage change well.
Charting Change (Second Edition) provides a set of visual tools that will help you build a coherent approach to change, identifying both the things that will help make the effort successful, and those people and barriers that will try to block the way. Leaders that read and absorb this book will be able to make productive use of the tools to drive buy-in, alignment, and successful change outcomes across the organization, its systems, and its culture.
This second edition features new topics such as architecting for change, overcoming resistance to change, systems thinking, and building a continuous change culture, as well as new visual tools such as the Organizational Agility Framework. This book will help leaders and managers visualize, plan, and execute change and transformation in a more accessible, visual, and collaborative way. Once you are done reading Charting Change (Second Edition) you will approach any big change with confidence.
SPECIAL DEAL: To celebrate the launch of the hardcover (free shipping worldwide*) and the eBook, my publisher is offering everyone the special 40% off employee discount when you enter the discount code EMP24 through February 24, 2024 directly on the Springerlink web site.
