Praise for GPS for Change Management
Finally an academic book that does not look like a PhD thesis with thousands of footnotes with references to research articles you will never read anyway. On the contrary this book is as readable as a novel. It is directed to you and gives you short stories that are easy to recognise. The presented framework is simple, relevant and logical. Shortly: This is an academic book that does not regress you to the school bench to learn definitions by heart or to get lost in the jungle of methods. Bravo, Eknes and Kveine!
I have used Randi Kveine as facilitator for the development of myself and the leaders reporting to me through five years, based on the tools described in the book. As a headmaster I got the tools to sort, analyse and help as developing the leadership of the school further. I am pleased the book «GPS for Change Management» has been published. The book enables my to access the GPS-tools and to share them with my co-workers. The book is easy to read, thorough, filled with useful tips and future oriented!
«GPS for endringsledelse» is a must for everyone working as leaders or with development processes. The book is a practical step-by-step guide and a source of inspiration for all change agents – in small and large ventures and organisations.
I have lead organisations through small and large change processes. One element is always useful: That I as leader spend time to reflect during the process. Where are we now, what is the status, should I use my resources differently, am I in control, are people with me? «GPS for change management» is a useful tool for such reflections.
