Overview

Popular wisdom suggests that about 80 percent of all change initiatives end in failure. To discover why, Herold and Fedor examined more than 300 organizational changes-and they found that, while almost all advice about organizational change focuses on a few steps applied to a single change, few people actually lived in a "one change at a time" environment. Rather, they lived on a "roller coaster of change," with overlapping changes being driven by different events, led by different executives, and originating from different parts of the organization.

In response, Herold and Fedor have developed a holistic change model that takes account of both the abilities of those who will be asked to lead and carry out the change, and the context in which the change is to occur.

That model is presented in this practical book, which will be of use to anyone who is likely to lead change.
