Description

John Kotter, the world's foremost expert on business leadership, distills 25 years of experience into Leading Change. A must-have for any organization, this visionary and very personal audiobook is at once inspiring, clear-headed, and filled with important implications for the future.

The pressures on organizations to change will only increase over the next decades. Yet the methods managers have used to strengthen their companies—total quality management, reengineering, right sizing, restructuring, cultural change, and turnarounds—routinely fall short. In Leading Change, Kotter identifies an eight-step process that every company must go through to achieve its goal, and shows where and how people—good people—often derail. Emphasizing again and again the critical need for leadership to make change happen, Leading Change provides unprecedented access to our generation's business master and a positive role model for leaders to emulate.

A Key Resource for Any Change Leader

The author opens this book with a discussion of the common errors people make in trying to implement organizational change. He then goes on to counteract those errors with his eight-stage process for implementing effective and sustainable change: 1) Establishing a sense of urgency; 2) Creating the guiding coalition; 3) Developing a vision and strategy; 4) Communicating the change vision; 5) Empowering a broad base of people to take action; 6) Generating short-term wins; 7) Consolidating gains and producing even more change; and 8) Institutionalizing new approaches into the culture. The first four stages are intended to defrost a hardened status quo, the next three introduce many new practices, and the final stage grounds the changes into the corporate culture and helps them stick. This book is a comprehensive approach to change management and highly recommended for anyone undertaking a major change effort within an organization.

An oldie but a goodie - and works well on audio

I'd read the hard copy of this several times and wanted to refamiliarise myself with the content before working with a client interstate. I listened to the audiobook on the 13-hour drive to the event and found it clear, engaging and easy to recall (although can't say if that would have been the case if I hadn't already been familiar with the material).
This remains for me one of the benchmark texts on organisational change and I recommend it to anyone with an interest in that area.

Missing Sections

Any additional comments?

The audible book seems to be missing sections, there are quite a few instances where the sentence is cut off and a brand new one with a different topic starts. I am not sure what happened in the editing process

Profound

This needs to be read. I wish I had before taking the effort to implement change in a previous company. Steps 1 & 2 were not satisfied and all efforts by the few involved floundered when they met opposing, complacent forces.

Great Read

What made the experience of listening to Leading Change the most enjoyable?

The engaging delivery of the narrator. He was easy to follow and made the listen enjoyable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Leading Change?

Understanding the importance of changing cultures in the 21st Century. It is extremely relevant and to hear them speak of this from 1996, shows the vastly changing business environment most firms are challenged with today.

What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The story telling comes to life. Story telling is key. Executives remember stories more than some data points. Great story telling in this book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Change is inevitable - learn to adapt!

Any additional comments?

Great book and highly recommended

Boring, repetitive and long

The only thing worse than reading this book is listening to it. It is boring, and repeats the same themes over and over again. I had to listen to it prior to a meeting and I couldn’t wait for it to be over. This was the same feeling everyone else in my group had about the book.

Timeless advice, but dated

It was good to reminded of some key, thought provocing concepts. The examples are quite dated and the narration boarded on annoying.

Okay book

I am reading this book as part of a management course along with several others. There are some good principles laid out throughout the book but it’s also full of a lot of fluff. You probably could have gotten the same amount of information across in much less time.

Für Führungskräfte inspirierend

Kotter geht mit seinem 8 Stufenprogramm auf die Aufgabe der Führungskraft bei Veränderungsprozessen in Organisationen ein. Während des Hörens hat mich einiges an meine Erfahrungen erinnert, habe nachträglich verstanden, weshalb vieles nicht gut lief und einige Inspiration für zukünftige Veränderungsvorhaben erhalten. Für Führungskräfte absolut empfehlenswert.
Sehr gut vorgelesen, in einem, auch für ungeübte Ohren, verständlichem Englisch. Ich habe nebenher im Buch mitgelesen: Es sind auch die Tabellen im Buch vom Sprecher gut und verständlich vorgetragen.

A landmark book for successful change agents

This book is enlightening to both academics and practitioners responsible for the management of organisational change. It provides fruitful insights for an eight-stage process of leading change in small and medium sizes as well as large organisations:
1. Establishing a Sense of Urgency
2. Creating the Guiding Coalition
3. Developing a Vision and Strategy
4. Communicating the Change Vision
5. Empowering Employee for Broad-Based Action
6. Generation Short-Term Winns
7. Consolidating Gains and Producing More Change
8. Anchoring New Approaches in the Culture
The book ends with an outlook on leadership skills and perspectives for the 21st Century:
Leadership in the 21st century. Future leaders and change agents should have:
- a persistent sense of urgency
- should excel teamwork at the top management too
- need to be able to create and communicate visions
- successful organisations need to become more like incubators of leadership
- should enforce flatter hierarchies, less bureaucracy, greater willingness to take risks
- delegate management for excellent short-term performance
- reduce/minimise unnecessary interdependences within organisations
- Forster an adaptive corporate culture
Although a bit dated, the book is still a landmark for all change agents interested in the leading prosperous changes in organisations nowadays.

Gutes Hörbuch, toller Leitfaden

Das Buch ist inhaltlich an den 8 Phasen des Change Prozesses gegliedert. Der Vorleser betont den Inhalt und hält somit die Aufmerksamkeit hoch. Man sollte geübt in der englischen Sprache sein um nicht den Kontext zu verlieren. Beim Auto fahren ist es schwierig sich auf den Inhalt zu konzentrieren.
