Nice, but i wished it was more easy to read, it took me very long time to finish it as it was boring.

Over the course of my career, I've learned that "change management" is both highly critical to creating positive and sustainable change while at the same time, seems to be one of the most ambiguous and widely misunderstood concepts in business. Why? Because change, at its core, requires people to do something different and there's no "formula" for changing human beings. This books brings this dilemma into sharp focus and provides lots of thought-provoking and practical insights.

Companies constantly start change initiatives and frequently results never match-up with their objectives. Why? Well people are involved and Jeanie Duck has managed to communicate this with the reader. If you are about to initiate a reorganization and desire to have your intended results achieved, you are advised to give this a read.

A good introduction to change management for those new to the topic or just starting to delve into it. Easy to read but informative, and good to keep in the back of your mind when embarking on projects involving change management

the 5 stages in the change curve are: 1) stagnation, 2) preparation, 3) implementation, 4) determination, 5) fruition

Took me a while to move through this one. Describes a change model and emphasizes communication and building engagement. It was OK, but not really groundbreaking.

Great read on a little-talked about part of major, organizational-wide change: the emotional affects. Well worth reading if your organization is stagnating and an overhaul is on the horizon.
