On April 14, 1789, George Washington cordially received a weary visitor who had traveled for seven days from New York City to deliver a message from Congress. Reading formally from a letter by Senator John Langdon, Charles Thomson, secretary to Congress, informed Washington (most probably in his private study) that he had been unanimously elected the first President of the United States. Washington accepted the position with a prepared statement of his own. This crucial moment in American history ignited a series of changes to the United States’ new republican system of government – changes that still affect the American political system more than 200 years later. This case details the creation of the executive office by our country’s most infl...

Leading Change Book Description :

It is often claimed that 70% of organizational change efforts fail, despite the popularity of linear change models. However these linear approaches to change are often based on the premise that change is predictable and straightforward, when actually change is complex, with the 'human' element often changing the functioning of the organizational system as a whole. Leading Change provides the practical framework that allows leaders to actively engage with a complex adaptive system to bring about successful organizational change. Supported by academic research, and grounded with a range of examples and cases, the book offers a genuine, viable alternative to existing approaches....

Leading Change Management Book Description :

A survey of over 1000 corporate directors found that 31% of CEOs fired by their boards were removed because they mismanaged change - less than 20% of all change initiatives are really successful. Leading Change Management will help you turn those statistics around. Grounded in reality, it is based on a study of over 300 change management processes involving over 8000 individuals. The research revealed that change is a messy, complicated process affected by many factors and that the leaders involved need a framework to produce a successful outcome. The resultant model developed by the authors, and outlined in this book, was then road-tested by hundreds of frontline managers to prove that it works. If you are faced with spearheading a new change initia...
