Why do so many organizational change initiatives fail so frequently?
Organizations are systems with input, process, and output - so the mechanics of change should be easy enough. Yet time and again these mechanistic approaches to change just don't work. What are we missing?
Sure, organizations are systems, but they are living systems, made up of real people. Org charts are tidy. People are messy.
In Orchestrating Change, Jeff Pedde offers a more realistic way to approach organizational change. He understands how to explore and leverage the messy ways people work with each other and help them to deliver better results faster.
Reinforced with detailed examples from his long and successful career, Pedde lays out a simple framework to help leaders and change implementers plot a course, launch, and course-correct toward the goals of their change journey.
This a must-read book for anyone serious about improving organizational performance and delivering better results.
