A huge amount of change initiatives fail and drawing on success stories can limit the risk. Based on a combination of four years rigorous research and practical application of the emerging findings, the book explores the dilemmas related to the growing need for change and the difficulty in making change work. It is destined for leaders who wish to implement change more intelligently and effortlessly. Drawing on a combination of research and extensive organisational experience, the authors present a framework for leading change that describes the specific leader practices they have found make the biggest difference between success and failure in implementing high magnitude change.
