About this ebook

What is change? Why is it important? How do you change successfully?

THE ART OF CHANGE provides timeless answers to these eternal questions. It is a modern reading of The Book of Changes, in Chinese I Ching, with focus on practical guidance for actions and decisions, consciously leaving out the fortune-telling parts.

It is an interpretation of 64 short sections on how to successfully create and respond to change in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world where the rate of changeis increasing daily.

Through diverse situations and patterns, you will discover new perspectives on people and their behaviours, get actionable advice on handling and creating change strategically and effectively, and, thus, learn how to make a difference.

You will also improve your understanding of China and Chinese ways of transforming, leading and strategising since The Book of Changes is deeply ingrained in Chinese thinking, decision-making and actions, e.g. as part of civil servant education for over 2,000 years and as a primary influence on Sun Tzu’s Art of War and Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching.

"Thank you for sharing all these profound insights, which remain highly relevant, in a very digestible format!" Johan Ivari, officer and teacher

“I have read things that I needed to read — right now, in my life. As usual, the I Ching never fails." Rod Leaverton, strategist

"This is wonderful." Frank Chiaro, passionate explorer
