In the ever-evolving business world, change is becoming the new normal. Businesses are constantly reinventing themselves, job descriptions are being rewritten, titles are changing—the list goes on and on. But sometimes a change that is intended to save or rejuvenate a business, leads not to success, but utter collapse. The number one reason? A poor change management plan (or lack of one altogether).
Having a well-thought-out road map for change dramatically increases the chance that a change initiative will be successful. Good change efforts take time, research, and a lot of planning. There's no one right way to do it, but there are many resources available for creating the change initiative that is right for you and your business. ASTD's Best On Change Management will help you on your way.
