“Makes an invaluable contribution to the fields of organization development, change management, and strategic planning, as well as to the individuals who lead and consult in organizations including executives and senior manager, internal and external consultants who assist organizations in their efforts to survive and thrive in the current fast-paced, highly competitive, global, complex, and ever-changing marketplace.”

“The message in the book is not only why enterprise wide change (EWC) is critical to organizations who want to survive and be successful, but also how to implement this change. The examples of what not to do versus how to do it right were very helpful. The comprehensive details and examples given about other companies made the message and information even clearer. It’s one thing to write about a topic, but to actually get your point across is another. The authors also put together a beginning to end process on EWC in one book that is easy to read and implement.”
--Lori L. While, senior vice president, Valley Credit Union
