Change Management Fables: Ten fables about the leadership paradox of implementing organisational change management versus delivering normal day-to-day operations.
About this Book: Leaders go about their daily task of implementing the organisation’s strategy to deliver financial results. All of a sudden there is a change explosion that disrupts normal day-to-day operations. This is the leadership paradox: implementing change versus delivering day-to-day operations. Leaders then need to adjust their focus to implement the change, so that the organisation stays ahead of the competition and continues to deliver revenue to its shareholders. That means the change has to ensure a return on investment, full employee change adoption, and sustainable change.
Leadership of Change® Volume 1 represents the author’s experiences throughout his career, it, provides ten practical stories of typical and consistent change management challenges that organisations and leaders experience when implementing organisation change, transitioning their organisation from the current ‘a’ state to the future ‘B’ state. Potential solutions are introduced which are developed in Volumes 2 and 3. This book includes illustrations as well as the a2B Change Management Framework® (a2BCMF®), the AUILM® Employee Change Adoption Model and the a2B5R® Employee Behaviour Change Model.
