When Change Comes Undone

When Change Comes Undone




The majority of change initiatives fail-and managers are often left to deal with the consequences. What would you do if: your staff turned sour on a new CEO's change plans; a new performance management system demotivated your workforce; or a merger turned the workplace into a battlefield? This guide will help you decide what to do when change initiatives backfire or simply don't work.
