About the book

Organizations must develop strategies to handle not only the challenges of change, but also the process of change itself, in order to adapt with the turbulent new business climate. Solutions from the past are no longer relevant. Innovative solutions are uncommon, but even the finest ones necessitate not only the efforts of individuals but also the efforts of other agents. Sims sees change agents at all levels of any business, including line and staff employees, human resource specialists, and those who have had little motivation to take on such activities in the past and haven't been held accountable for the results. Change interventions are given using unique models, as well as the approaches and tools that executives will need to complete them. The result is a book that experienced executives will understand and apply, as well as one that will educate newcomers by showing them new methods to harness their own instincts and strengths for innovation.


Sims and his contributors question the standard prescription for change, offering a convincing analysis of current change management methodologies, highlighting their merits and underlining what can be removed to drive change. Each author offers insight into the talents, skills, and beliefs needed to create sustainable change quickly and effectively. They also underline that there is no one-size-fits-all strategy to change management, and that the importance of creativity, flexibility, and adaptability continues to reign supreme.
