Making Sense of Change Management is about making change easier. It is aimed at anyone who wants to understand why change happens, how it happens and what needs to be done to make change a welcome rather than a dreaded concept. However, this book is not a 'one size fits all' simplistic panacea to all change whatever the circumstances. Instead it offers considered insights into the many frameworks, models and ways of approaching change and helps the reader to apply the right approach to each unique situation. Contents include:

individual change;

team change;

organizational change;

leading change;

structural change;

mergers and acquisitions;

cultural change;

IT-based process change; and

how best to implement change.

Written for academics and professionals alike, Making Sense of Change Management identifies and offers explanations of all current models of change as well as offering practical guidelines and examples showing the reader why change can go wrong; and how to get it right.

Highly recommended. In 2004, as the Head of Change Management at the London Borough of Lambeth, the book was one of the mandatory readings for participants attending the in-house training programme. The book could be further enhanced with pratical ready to use templates, tools and worked examples e.g. around change impact assessments, process and performance improvements, organisational design, transition planning and benefits realisation, to mention a few.
