Reviews for Lean Change Management
This book is an absolute must have for anybody and any group leading change within their organization. I have seen this book evolve over the last couple of years. This book explains the theory but also has a lot of tools that you can immediately use to implement changes in a efficient and low risk manner. He uses the lean approach of doing a lot of experiments rapidly, and pivoting as you get feedback and insight to the changes.
People and organizations are complex. There is a lot of personal emotions that come with change. These proven tools that Jason shares helps depersonalize the change by using big visible displays to filter personal attachments.We have all read books on the theory of change. This is the first book that I’ve come across that has actually given me tools to effectively implement change…immediately.
Time today is a rare commodity. I highly recommend using your limited time to read this book. It’s going to save you a lot of time and pain afterwords.David Dame, 5 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Managers all over the world need to read Jason’s book. Change is a permanent feature of the modern organizations, and not knowing the practices that Jason describes in his book means that managers are missing critical knowledge to performJurgen Appelo
Finally – an author who acknowledges the fact that a pre-baked, monolithic, externally directed “Change Management Program” is going to achieve few, if any, of its stated goals. Stop looking for the “14 Magic Steps to Overcome Resistance”. They don’t exist.
Drawing from the lessons of Lean, Jason Little articulates the need for a flexible, experimental, transparent, and highly inclusive approach to organizational change. He also highlights the impact of change on the human psyche and the underlying imperative that managers acknowledge three simple facts:
1) People are different.
2) There are many tools. Sometimes they work.
3) Leaders rarely know the “correct” approach without engaging in trial-and-error and learning to embrace failure.
This is one of those books that will have a rainbow of Post-it flags hanging from its edges. It will be dog-eared, and it will be filled with margin notes.
It will be your go-to resource as you fight to create real change in your organization.Geoff Schaadt, 5 out of 5 stars on Amazon
