Publishers Description: It is often claimed that 70% of organizational change efforts fail. This despite the popularity of linear change models, such as Kotters 8 step model.The reason few change efforts succeed as intended is because they are based on two implicit assumptions and one capability gap:1. The great leader, or great leadership team, comes up with a vision and then succeeds in persuading the rest of the organization to follow 2. People will happily embrace change without being afforded the opportunity to make their own meaning of that change 3. Few change practitioners or leaders have a broad understanding of human change; many place more emphasis on project managementMost change management initiatives are implicitly "top-down" in that they dont provide space for the broader organization to question the basis for change, let alone play a significant role in shaping the change. Leading Change offers an alternative-adopting a complex adaptive system to explain not only why many linear programs may be deemed more successful than first thought, but that actively engaging with the challenges of the human element in organizational change can lead to guaranteed success.
