When David Miller, founder and Managing Director of specialist change management provider Changefirst, began to plan his new book Successful Change he was adamant he didn’t want to write just another book on the 70% of change projects that fail. Miller wanted to “shine a light on the more positive aspects of change – and do it in a way that was practically useful to people tasked with delivering change.”
The result? An easy to apply guide that shows you how to deliver successful change within your organisation – and more specifically how you can do this through a focus on people.
In Successful Change Miller draws on the unrivalled experience that he and his team have amassed over the past 16 years through working with large, global companies to help them build their own internal change capability using the Changefirst methodology, processes, research and IP. In this time Miller and his colleagues have trained and worked with over 10,000 people in 35 different countries. This experience is expertly articulated and shared by Miller in Successful Change in a way that is practical and easy to digest and, perhaps more importantly, apply. The book manages the difficult balancing act of being strategic in its coverage but also being full of useful takeaways and step-by-step “how to’s” that change management practitioners can apply immediately in their everyday work.
Craig Dinsell, EVP Human Resources at Oppenheimerfunds Inc puts it succinctly when he says “This is the kind of book you carry around with you. In a sea of sameness and ‘consultant speak’ Miller cuts through the theory and presents insightful, business savvy solutions centered on people.... it is essential reading for anyone confronted by change and in today’s business environment that means everyone!”
Successful Change will benefit anyone who is faced with delivering major change and facing key challenges that range from securing senior management buy-in and sponsorship for change right through to overcoming resistance from those often impacted most heavily by it – the people on the frontline. It has proven techniques that have been successfully applied to a wide range of change challenges including strategy implementation, technology implementation, business process changes, restructuring and quality management initiatives
