A Business Week Bestseller
What will it take to bring your organisation successfully into the 21st century? The world's foremost expert on business leadership distills 25years of experience and wisdom based on lessons he has learned from scores of organisations and businesses to write this visionary guide. The result is very personal book that is at once inspiring, clear headed and filled with important implications for the future.
The pressures on organisations to change will only increase over the next decades. Yet the methods managers have used in the attempt to transform their companies into stronger competitors - total quality management, reengineering, right sizing, restructuring, cultural change and turnarounds - routinely fall short, says Kotter because they fail to alter behaviour.
Emphasising again and again the critical need for leadership to make change happen, Leading Change provides the vicarious experience and positive role models for leaders the emulate. This book identifies an eight step process that every company must go through to achieve its goal, and shows where and how people - good people - often derail.
Reading this highly personal book is like spending a day with John Kotter. It reveals what he has seen, heard, experienced, and concluded in many years of working with companies to create lasting transformation. This book is an inspirational yet practical resource for for everyone who has a stake in orchestrating changes in their organisation. In Leading Change we have unprecedented access to our generation's master of leadership.
