I just invested in myself with the HBR’S 10 Must Reads Collection by Harvard Business Review Press. This series is really good because each book has 10 of the best articles published by Harvard University on each topic. I think it is a must read for any ambitious manager, new or experienced leader.

It is easy to read, each book has approximately 300 pages. Each chapter is an article from great authors such as Peter F. Drucker, Theodore Levitt, Robert S. Kaplan, David P. Norton and others. One of...more

They are definitely a good read if you are looking for guidance. While some articles (mainly collaborations or case studies of how the programs devised by the authors worked wonders) did beat around the bush, it is the veterans like Christensen Clayton, Kaplan and Norton, Kotter, Peter Drucker and many others who moved my heart through beautiful prose in argument. A real story is often more influential than those with ‘A construction company in America’ type of themes and yet some researchers ha...more
Excellent book. Provides several papers on effective change management. There are a few standouts (The Real Reason People Won't Change, Why Change Programs Dont Produce Change) and a few that are a little less so (A Survival Guide for Leaders). Some of the papers in this book skip around the really hard issue of change that results in loss of headcount- so obviously in parts that its kind of annoying.

Instead of reading one author's take on change management, the reader was exposed to ten articles that serve to give the reader exactly the viewpoints he needs. Some articles clashed and others agreed and complemented one another and that is the beauty of HBR's collection and most representative of what reality is.

I bought and read this book last year for an MBA paper I was writing. It repeats Kotter's steps for making change happen; otherwise, the book focuses on the findings of academic papers published by the authors who contribute to the book.
It's a pretty good summary of articles. I liked it and I thought it had many different perspectives on change. But I'm anal and therefore like to read more on each point of view. But it's a good starting point.

Good book for the people who wants to know about change management.

Gives insight on the change that modified the organization structure of big companies.
No one does meaningless business jargon and multi-step process management tools like the Harvard Business Review! That's pretty much all I can say about that.
