Big Change, Best Path provides a new understanding of how change happens in organizations. Based on the largest base of empirical change research data ever developed, this book brings unique insights to the dynamics and process of organizational change. Covering understanding success and failure, defining and describing the drivers and conditions of change, and the patterns and paths of organizational change, it gives business leaders and managers an essential guide to making successful change happen.
Using ground-breaking modelling, Big Change, Best Path shows that a whole new way of managing change is possible, from empirical benchmarking, predictive approaches that highlight the specific actions needed at any point of a change program, to visualization to show how each part of an organization is responding. It also challenges many of the myths of change management and the dynamics of how organizations respond to change, clearly showing the common pitfalls and misunderstandings.
A finalist for the Chartered Management Institute’s 2017 Management Book of the Year Award, Big Change, Best Path explains a compelling, more analytical way and process for driving successful change, and presents a ground-breaking vision for the future of how organizations can become more agile and resilient.
