The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Making Change Stick: Twelve Principles for Transforming Organizations':

Reviewer Joan Adams wrote:
Do your change initiatives come unstuck? Here's help! Change is one of those notoriously nebulous concerns that companies have a hard time managing. For most companies, change is a mysterious thing -- sometimes it happens, most of the time it doesn't, and nobody really knows why. Rich Reale takes the mystery out of the change process. In this book he breaks down the requirements for sustainable change into twelve manageable principles. Each chapter is supplemented with real-life examples, making the change concepts something that managers can actually use when facing day-to-day change management challenges. The twelve principles have been assembled into a practical guide that bridges the gulf between the technical and the human side of change. The book is filled with examples, questions to ponder, and quick tips for putting the principles into action. The principles are applicable to anyone who has to adapt to organizational change. Leaders, in particular, will find the principles helpful in connecting their own experiences into a more complete and successful approach for leading change.

Book description:

Does something need to change in your organization? Are you pondering how to get started -- or wondering why the last change initiative was less than a resounding success? This book explores the reasons why change fails to stick and offers practical suggestions for building and leading change-capable organizations. The essential components for initiating and sustaining change are analyzed in twelve steps. Each section includes questions for leaders to ask themselves about their organization and their own influence on its attitude toward change, as well as practical ideas for helping everyone in the organization become more adaptable, resilient, and change-capable. Leaders at all organizational levels can make change stick by following the principles detailed in this book. About the Author Richard Reale earned his Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Science degrees from Stevens Institute of Technology. He has held key leadership positions in organizations ranging from start-up companies to Fortune 500 corporations and has taught Organizational Behavior at Ramapo College of New Jersey. With a long track record of implementing systemic change, Rich established Positive Impact Associates in 1993 to help create environments that foster performance excellence. His methods combine traditional and leading-edge philosophies to enhance individual performance and group collaboration.
