Who Killed Change?

Solving the Mystery of Leading People Through Change

Every day organizations around the world launch change initiatives—often big, expensive ones—designed to improve the status quo. Yet 50 to 70 percent of these change efforts fail. A few perish suddenly, but many die painful, protracted deaths that drain the organization's resources, energy and morale.

Who or What Is Killing Change?

That's what you'll find out in this witty whodunit. The story features a Columbo-style detective, Agent Mike McNally, who's investigating the murder of yet another change. One by one, Agent McNally interviews thirteen prime suspects, including a myopic leader named Victoria Vision; a chronically tardy manager named Ernest Urgency; an executive named Clair Communication, whose laryngitis makes communication all but impossible; and several other dubious characters.

The suspects are sure to sound familiar and you're bound to relate them to your own workplace. In the end, Agent McNally solves the case in a way that will inspire you to become an effective Change Agent in your own organization.A step-by-step guide at the back of the book shows you how to apply the story's lessons to the real world. Key questions help you evaluate the health of your organization's change initiatives, and you'll learn best practices for enabling and sustaining the desired change.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 resistance to change is criminal, isn't it ? 15 février 2010
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Ken Blanchard e.a. introduced the new 'criminal story' approach. Since many people only read this kind of novels it will help them take a book on management. Change is one of the most difficult things in business. Let's hope it will convince some of the readers that it is'nt that easy to introduce change in an organisation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful read to understand the effects of change in growing enviroments 16 juin 2009
Par Brandon Wood - Publié sur Amazon.com
What an interesting way to look at change within a firm. It was amazing for me to see much of what I learned in my operations and organizational management classes put into a story about a murder. Without the multiple facets that make up the company supporting and nurturing Change, it will "die" and will keep the company from prospering. Blanchard and Britt do a wonderful job at explaining ways to facilitate change in a growing company. The experiences from their prior work expertise is evident in this book.

My favorite quote from the book was that of Performance, who said, "all good ideas must be reduced to hard work." This is what Performance is all about! As a student entrepreneur, I have found that a good idea is only a good idea until a strategy can be put in place to make the idea flourish and come to fruition.

Who Killed Change is a remarkable breakdown of organizational structure and methods to success in changing organizational environments.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Vital Change Management Strategies to Implement Today 7 mai 2010
Par LookingUp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Having just moved into a new leadership role in a new non-profit sector, I was delighted to find "Who Killed Change," by one of my favorite authors, Ken Blanchard.

The book is a concise "whodunit" type read...exposing the thirteen change killers in an organization. Easily read in two hours...clear implementation startegies.

The mystery in a business setting takes a look at such culprits as:
*Culture of the firm
*Leadership commitment
*Absence of sponsorship and guidance
*Problems with the change leadership team
*Ineffective communication and dialogue
*Lack of urgency
*Lack of communication of an inspiring vision
*A plan w/o necessary operational details
*A tight budget leader w/o sense of vision
*Poor training
*Lack of achievable incentive plan
*Poor performance management
*Questionable accountability

Thank Ken for a tool that provides useful checklists describing what change-assassinating behaviors to look for along with clear solutions I can implement today. A suggestion for you - take the mini-assessment to determine how ready your organization is for change at [...].

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Creative & Interesting Read on a Critical Topic 29 mars 2010
Par J. McGaw - Publié sur Amazon.com
Who Killed Change ("WKC") is filled with valuable insights, and it is fun to read.
WKC a great job of making a complex subject (leading people through change) easy to understand for the typical manager or leader. This is the way it should be as change management/leadership should not be the practice of a select few within organizations.
I really like the chapter at the end of the book (Helping Change Thrive in Your Organization) that shows you how to apply the story's lessons to the real world. The questions provided help you evaluate the health of your own change initiatives.
