This book is the result of Garth Holloway’s twenty years of experience in the management consulting industry. In it, he shares many of the key lessons he has learned about spearheading change. While he addresses timeworn topics, his approach is refreshingly different to the mainstream. This highly readable collection of articles will cause even the most experienced practitioners to re-evaluate their ideas as Garth as encourages you to:
Demand more. The last 20% is worth more than the first 80%.
Carefully consider just whose problems you should be thinking about.
Become creactive: where “creative” meets “active.”
Learn how “managing change” and “managing risk” are practically synonymous.
Use KPIs more effectively. If you’re not going to manage it, don’t bother to measure it.
Deal effectively with the maliciously compliant, those dangerous employees who do exactly what they are told to do, neither more nor less.
Organise for organizational learning. Realise that driving change in your organization means engaging the hearts and minds of the people first.
