Essential resources for training and HR professionals
"This book makes an invaluable contribution to the fields of organization development, change management, and strategic planning, as well as to the individuals who lead and consult in organizations including executives and senior managers and internal and external consultants who assist organizations in their efforts to survive and thrive in the current fast-paced, highly competitive, global, complex, and ever-changing marketplace."
—Jeanne Cherbeneau, president, Cherbeneau & Associates
"The message in this book is not only why enterprise-wide change (EWC) is critical to organizations that want to survive and be successful, but also how to implement this change. The examples of what not to do versus how to do it right were very helpful. The comprehensive details and examples given about other companies make the book's message and information even clearer. It's one thing to write about a topic, but to actually get your point across is another. The authors put together a beginning-to-end process on EWC in one book that is easy to read and implement."
—Lori L. While, senior vice president, Valley Credit Union
"This book provides valuable context and content to enable the reader to understand and apply the Systems Thinking concepts. It provides the tools that are needed to actually start and sustain an enterprise change effort in a planned and systematic method. This book also presents an excellent introduction to the framework for the complex process of enterprise-wide change. It's a great road map!"
—Mary Jefferies, director, human resource services, Alberta Environment
