Rick’s Big Question about Change: What are you looking for right now that’s missing from all the books, etc?

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

I’ve got a question for you about leading or managing change: What are you looking for right now that you can’t find in the existing books, articles or services?

It’s been over fifteen years since the first books on change management were published, and yet the statistics for success remain the same (about 2/3 of all organizational changes fail). I want to know why. Your response to the question may help all of us learn where we need to focus our attention.

I have two reasons for asking. My publisher is going to release a paperback edition of my book, Beyond the Wall of Resistance, and this will give me a chance to update and improve it. I’ve been waiting for this opportunity. . . And the second reason, I hope that your response to my question will stimulate rich conversations in our online community.

You can respond be sending me an e-mail rick@beyondresistance.com or go to my online community Change Management Open Source Project. You’ll find my question listed in the discussion forum.

Thanks. I look forward to hearing from you.
