‘I found myself completely absorbed by the compelling “in the field” stories of leading and managing change in a variety of organizations. Culling what each company did that was distinctive and then sharing the lessons any of us that play a role in transformation should pay attention was simply powerful. This book is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand the art and science of profound change while also considering how to find the best path for an organization’s unique journey. I applaud wholeheartedly that this book evolved from thoughtful leaders who wanted to reflect, learn, share and grow as a community.’

I am sure these inspirational stories will make many more organizations and their managers to undertake change interventions and bring pride to their organization, profession and the countries where they are doing business. I am sure this book will be read globally by CEOs, students, managers, teachers, researchers and change facilitators.’
