Product Details


“Organizational change tends to fall apart under the weight of its own grandiose goals, chaotic initiatives, and crushing complexity. There is true wisdom—drawn from Bill Pasmore’s forty years of research and personal experience—in the underlying simplicity of his message: ‘Think fewer. Think scarcer. Think faster. Think smarter.’”
Mark Nadler, Principal and cofounder, Nadler Advisory Services

“Reasons abound for why so many organization change efforts fail, but one of the most important is that leaders soon discover that getting the change process right is very difficult. Bill Pasmore provides helpful measurements and case examples that can raise the percentage rate for success well beyond where we remain today, at a dismal 30 percent.”
W. Warner Burke, Edward Lee Thorndike Professor of Psychology and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University

“In this outstanding and very readable book, Bill Pasmore shows why conventional approaches to leading change don’t work and provides new insights and practical guidelines for leading systemic change.”
Michael Beer, Professor Emeritus, Harvard Business School; cofounder and Chairman, Center for Higher Ambition Leadership; and cofounder and Director, TruePoint

“The high failure rate for organizational change efforts tells me that the so-called experts really don’t know how to manage change. But Bill Pasmore does, and here he provides what leaders in every sector at every level desperately need: a trove of practical advice, a tested playbook, and the inspiring assurance that complexity truly can bring out the best in us.”
Vice Admiral Cutler Dawson, USN (Ret.), President and CEO, Navy Federal Credit Union

“Bill Pasmore has again leveraged his significant experience in working with real-world organizations facing complex challenges. He provides a clear and compelling framework to guide leaders who are responsible for successfully executing change in today’s environment.” 
Vance Tang, Director, Comfort Systems USA and American Woodmark, and former President and CEO, KONE Inc.
