Who Killed Change?

Solving the Mystery of Leading People Through Change

Every day organizations around the world launch change initiatives—often big, expensive ones—designed to improve the status quo. Yet 50 to 70 percent of these change efforts fail. A few perish suddenly, but many die painful, protracted deaths that drain the organization's resources, energy and morale.

Who or What Is Killing Change?

That's what you'll find out in this witty whodunit. The story features a Columbo-style detective, Agent Mike McNally, who's investigating the murder of yet another change. One by one, Agent McNally interviews thirteen prime suspects, including a myopic leader named Victoria Vision; a chronically tardy manager named Ernest Urgency; an executive named Clair Communication, whose laryngitis makes communication all but impossible; and several other dubious characters.

The suspects are sure to sound familiar and you're bound to relate them to your own workplace. In the end, Agent McNally solves the case in a way that will inspire you to become an effective Change Agent in your own organization.A step-by-step guide at the back of the book shows you how to apply the story's lessons to the real world. Key questions help you evaluate the health of your organization's change initiatives, and you'll learn best practices for enabling and sustaining the desired change.

More applicable for higher levels of management

As a district manager of a Fortune 500 company I found some of the chapters beneficial; however, much of this book isn't applicable unless you have enough authority and influence at the top or you are part of a change leadership team. A small business owner with multiple employees may benefit from this book.

Maybe I'm more disappointed about this book because I was looking for a book about leading through change starting with an internal view or mindset. The title makes complete sense to me now...hindsight is 20-20 right. It's a book about all of the moving parts and process that need to take place to successfully implement change. Very little reading about yourself and the 'how to accept, adapt, reduce stress/anxiety, and lead a team through change.' A very big missed opportunity of this book.
