Many of us have read books on principles and techniques of management. I am not an exception. When I received the book, "When Change Happens…” my intuition said that this would be a different one altogether. I was right.

What is special about this book?

The book is on change management and some techniques around it, which the author (details about the author are shared at the end of this post) has focused on. What makes the book special is the author’s unique telling of an otherwise heavy and se

When Change Happens.... As a layman it was refreshing to have read the core principles and practices of business practice in a fictional format. Engaging with Matt, the protagonist, is simple and easy.

Lalit Jagtiani's personal experiences shape both the narrative and content of the book making ...more

Change management is a core business concept, but a layman to this field, like me, was able to comprehend the meaning of the concepts involved. And all this because of the simplicity of the writing style of the author. The language used in the book is easy and the narration i

The book takes course further with him feeling confident and invigorated to be a change agent after a workshop on organizational transformation. The events that follow are a tale of his reflective actions that motivate him to take charge of this process successfully. It is a tale of both personal and organizational transform ...more

Change is hard at the first, messy in the middle, and gorgeous at the end”

~ Robin Sharma

Can any other expression of views define the flow of “Change” more beautifully than what is rendered by Mr Robin Sharma. I guess, nay!!!

But yes there is one more piece of art which has narrated the process of change in a very subtle and stirring manner. And that came from the mind of a very knowledgeable man who has written and compiled some of his experiences in the form of a book. And you can find that vivi
