Well worth my time

If Change Management is your thing, this is a must listen. A lot of the information was deep but never boring. It opened my eyes to knowledge about Change Management. The real life stories used as examples helped with the understanding.

It was excellent. Easy, enjoyable and informative.

This book greatly offered perspective to the information given to me in my MBA program. Extremely affordable and worth every penny. Highly recommended!

Awesome researched materials to apply right now

Love it from the beginning to end. I especially liked the revelation that one does not need formal authority to effect change in an organization.

If you listen to nothing else on C.M.. this is it!

Just like what the cover says... If you read nothing else on change management, read these 10 articles.

It combined multiple views on Change along with useful tactics and strategies, that went through the individual, the teams and the organization.

Highly recommended to anyone exploring the topic of Change management & transformation.

Good Information, just dated

The articles were good, but felt like they were dated. There were not any surprises or revelations if you have read at least one book or article regarding change management. Would like to have heard articles from the last few years on how firms are dealing with change in hyper competitive markets and multigenerational workforce. Overall a good collection that compliment each other.

Engaging and very informative

You will learn a lot from this book. It's a bit overwhelming, but you'll be sure to go back and re-read chapters and reference key points. I totally recommend this for all managers and leaders!
