Change Management: The People Side of Change

This is a solid introduction to change management that focuses, as the title indicate, on the people change is impacting. I found the book to be practical and insightful when thinking about how to manage change. The book provides useful tools to help with your discussions. That said, the book is fairly basic and somewhat repetitive especially considering it’s short length.

Very basic but gives a good overview of PROSCI Change management process.

Not every book I read can be fun, I guess. This was a quick but dry overview of basic change management. It follows its own advice and builds your awareness of how change management is vital to business success. Then, it builds your desire to want to get better at it, before giving you some basic knowledge of what that change entails. It builds your ability by introducing you to tools and processes. Then, finally, it covers how to wrap up a project and what it could look like if you reinforce th ...more

As hard as it is to hear, the easy part of change management is the technical part. It’s something that I learned over a decade ago, as we were called in to implement new technology. We found that, though the solutions were technically beautiful, organizations weren’t getting the right value out of the change. That’s where Change Management: The People Side of Change comes in. It’s Prosci’s CEO Jeffrey Hiatt’s guide for managing the people side of change in the organization.

This book was optional reading for a training class I attended at work a few years ago. I never got around to reading it at the time, so I figured I'd read it during the work-from-home COVID-19 situation and get another credit toward my 2020 reading challenge.
It's based on the ADKAR model for change management. It distills what you learn in Prosci's training down to an easily digestable book - certainly good as a refresher if you've taken the training and probably a good introduction to the conc

Solid, clear instructions for working with individual to change and in return changing an organization.

Very standard but gave me some ideas to help clients through change! Especially love honing in on the individual and the "what's in it for me?"

This book came along with other learning material when I took the Change Management course through my work. It is a great intro into what Change Management is, or a great refresher. I think the course itself is excellent and the workshops are what drive all the information home. This was an easy read, not too dry and it had thought provoking questions, real world example and worksheets to help you through the process.

The book provides the reader several options when implementing change in an organization. It discusses the resistance and obstacles which will most likely be encountered and suggests ways to proactively address those issues.

This is a very simple, easy to read introduction about change management. Something to start with, but don't expect too much out of it if you have already worked on change management. This is for beginners. But it's great nonetheless.
