This book is written by the founder of the consulting firm I work for - but I'm not at all biased :-) At Emerson Human Capital Consulting, we pride ourselves on being unique in the marketplace - we're the largest firm to focus solely on Change Management, we're diverse, we're creative - in short, we're different from alot of the "suits" out there BUT we bring mad skills to our engagements and blow the competition out of the water. I share this because I think you'll find this to be true of Trish & Mary's book, too. It's visibly different in format and design, and that is on purpose. The unique design is intended to allow any user - newbie or professional - to digest "bites" of useful information about change, in the order and at the time needed. We've had great feedback that this makes the information much more USEABLE than in other books - these "bites" are instantly applicable to answer that question or solve that problem that you're facing in your change effort. I hope you enjoy this book as much as we enjoy applying these principles to our work!
