Contemplating organizational change is perhaps one of the most daunting tasks for any organizational leader. While the company’s P&L or other performance indicators may scream out for change, a walk through the graveyard of failed change efforts causes all but the most courageous to hide and hope for the best. In their very accessible and practical book, R. Kendall Lyman and Tony C. Daloisio provide strategies and stories so that leaders can take heart and master the process of change.
The core message is that mastering change is a holistic and simultaneous inside-out and outside-in process, which ensures harmonization of vision and elegance of execution. Lyman and Daloisio also remind leaders that organizational change cannot happen unless they change as well.
