Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
From a bestselling business expert, advice to shake one's wasteful routines. (Apr.)
Library Journal
Kriegel (If It Ain't Broke, Break It, LJ 4/15/91) and Brandt, a clinical psychologist specializing in change and transition, have written a guide to managing corporate change. They describe business's most common "sacred cows" and why they should be changed. These include "paper cows" (the more communication the better) and the "downsizing cow" (to cut costs, cut people). The authors also detail ways to build the change-ready environment and motivate people to change. A personality inventory and exercises for personnel are also included. Although other recent titles take on corporate change (e.g., Harry Woodward's Navigating Through Change, Irwin Professional Pub., 1994), none focuses on the need for change within traditional paradigms. Easy to read, with humorous illustrations, this book is recommended for public libraries.-Kathy Shimpock-Vieweg, Muchmore & Wallwork Lib., Phoenix
