Winner of Britains premier management book award. The Management Consultancies Association [MCA] Business Management Book of the Year qA really important book enjoyable, well-written inspirational a wake-up call for business!q The MCA Prize Judging Panel Every year corporations spend billions in pursuit of change. Some are successful. Many are not. Casting a critical eye over the big change efforts of more than 30 organizations worldwide, Paul Taffinder brings together the practical action steps needed for business leaders to develop a strategic and tactical route-map for transforming their firms. The route-map is developed from the S-curve principle popularized by Charles Handy and shows unequivocally that the time to initiate change is when you are at your most successful. He shows that real transformation demands an escalation of constructive conflict to produce and sustain the kind of radical change essential in organizations in a globalizing world. The executive actions to achieve big change across all sectors of business are constructed through detailed examples, international case studies and action lists. The authors conclusions are as original as they are insightful, and firmly supported by real world business sense. qExcellent Spending some time reading this book could be one of the best investments you make.q Peter Ellwood, Group Chief Executive, Lloyds TSB qA must for CEOs.
