Does your organization embrace change, or fear it? Organizations that fail to adapt over time become less profitable, and may be headed toward ruin. The techniques in this book will help you introduce new ideas into your organization. Each technique is written as a pattern (a form of knowledge management for capturing a recurring, successful practice). The patterns approach has proven successful in transforming fields from software to architecture, and this new book can help you become a successful advocate for change in your organization. The 48 patterns in this book are based on the authors' significant experience and interviews with others who have introduced new ideas into their organizations. The final product is not simply the ideas of the authors, but rather the reported successes of many different people in many different organizations throughout the world. When they read many of the techniques, experts in leading change might say: I already do that! And those less experienced in organizational change will be fortified with the knowledge to go about it effectively.
