The days of predictability and stability in organizations are gone. In today's world of rapid change, agility is a defining characteristic of successful, high--performance companies. In this environment, say Jeff Evans and Chuck Schaefer, it is essential that the ability of an organization to work at change be institutionalized. In Ten Tasks of Change, the authors offer a whole--systems approach to change at work and present you with a model for dealing with rapid and intentional change in the twenty--first--century organization. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, Evans and Schaefer give you a logical framework for: * Thinking through the objectives of the work of change * Planning the activities to achieve those objectives * Using a selection of best--practices principles to accomplish them ...and much more!
