Beyond Performance 2.0: A Proven Approach to Leading Large-Scale Change

$18.39

Double your odds of leading successful, sustainable change Leaders aren’t short on access to change management advice, but the jury has long been out as to which approach is the best one to follow. With the publication of Beyond Performance 2.0, the verdict is well and truly in. By applying the approach detailed by authors, Scott Keller and Bill Schaninger, the evidence shows that leaders can more than double their odds of success―from thirty percent to almost eighty. Whereas the first edition of Beyond Performance introduced the authors’ “Five Frames of Performance and Health” approach to change management, the fully revised and updated Beyond Performance 2.0 has been transformed into a truly practical “how to” guide for leaders. Every aspect of how to lead change at scale is covered in a step-by-step manner, always accompanied by practical tools and real-life examples. Keller and Schaninger’s work is distinguished in many ways, one of which is the rigor behind the recommendations. The underpinning research is the most comprehensive of its kind―based on over 5 million data points drawn from 2,000 companies globally over a 15-year period. This data is overlaid with the authors’ combined more than 40 years of experience in helping companies successfully achieve large-scale change. As senior partners in McKinsey & Company, consistently named the world’s most prestigious management consulting firm, Keller and Schaninger also draw on the shared experience of their colleagues from offices in over 60 countries with unrivaled access to CEOs and senior teams. Beyond Performance 2.0 also dares to go against the grain―eschewing the notion of copying best practices and instead guiding leaders to make choices specific to their unique context and organization. It does this with meticulously balance of focus on short- and long-term considerations, and on fully addressing the hard technical and oft cultural elements of making change happen. Further, the approach doesn’t just focus on delivering change; it builds an organization’s muscle to continuously change, making it healthier so that it can act with increased speed and agility to stay perpetually ahead of its competition. Leaders looking for a proven approach to leading large-scale change from a trusted source have found what they are looking for in Beyond Performance 2.0.

Change Management: Manage the Change or It Will Manage You (Management Handbooks for Results)

$49.95

Change Management: Manage Change or It Will Manage You represents a substantial core guidance effort for Change Management practitioners. Organizations currently contend with increasingly higher levels of knowledge-driven competition. Many attempt to meet the challenge by investing in expensive knowledge-driven change management systems. Such systems are useless, and sometimes even harmful, for making strategic decisions because they do not distinguish between what is strategically relevant and what is not. This Management-for-Results Handbook focuses on identifying and managing the specific, critical knowledge assets that your organization needs to disrupt your competitors, including tacit experience of key employees, a deep understanding of customers’ needs, valuable patents and copyrights, shared industry practices, and customer- and supplier-generated innovations. The authors present two aspects of Change Management: (1) traditional Change Management as it impacts the project management team’s activities and (2) a suggested new approach to Change Management directed at changing the culture. The focus is to prepare the people impacted by the project and change activities to accept and adapt to the new/changed working conditions. The first half of the book deals with traditional Change Management, which covers the topics of remembering, understanding, and applying. The second half presents the authors’ new approach to changing the culture, which deals with analyzing, evaluating, and creating.

Communication For Change Management: Mastering Communication To Architect Change

$15.99

Are you familiar with any of the statements below:“I was baffled about the changes in my company.”“Management fail to communicate the reason for the change.” “I offered my feedback, but my manager did not take me seriously.”“I heard about the changes via the grave vine.”“I have problems communicating with my team.”“My employees are not buying into the changes.”Sadly, when companies promote people into a management position and do not provide the necessary training, they end up with a host of bosses who have significant problems communicating with their team. From my research, 60% of new managers underperform in their first two years resulting in increased performance gaps, an uninspired workforce and a significantly high rate of employee turnover. Many managers and leaders have a significant problem communicating effectively with their team, and as a result, their team suffers, and their organization becomes a very toxic place to work. Change is hard for many people, and quite frankly people don’t like change. As the leader, you must understand the crucial role communication plays in your organization especially during a change because it will determine if your change is a success or a complete failure. This book will help all leaders (existing, new and upcoming) understand why communicating the “why” of the change is so essential, the various communication channels one can use to deliver their message, how to segment their communication and many, many more. This book will help any leader from any sector create an excellent organization, and in the process help all leaders become great communicators.

Fully Compliant: Compliance Training to Change Behavior

$30.83

A Better Kind of Compliance TrainingCompliance training succeeds when you balance the needs of not just the organization but also the employees who you hope will learn and change their behavior. In Fully Compliant, Travis Waugh challenges traditional compliance training that simply ensures employees avoid the legal risk of failing to comply with a specific mandate. With an ever-increasing number of compliance subjects to address, such programs are unsustainable. Instead, organizations must design compliance programs that serve a higher, broader purpose and build robust, resilient cultures focusing on integrity and ethics learning. Optimal compliance programs are flexible and create real learning experiences that change real behavior, thus diminishing the chance of misconduct in the first place. This book connects the three levers of human behavior―context, habits, and motivation―to compliance and how you can pull all three to create holistic training programs that do far more than check a box. It identifies ways to pick up small but meaningful wins in turning around an existing compliance program or designing a new course, which can turn stakeholders from skeptics into learning champions. And it offers an eight-step road map for implementing your own compliance learning plan. With this book, you’ll be able to: • Create behavior-based compliance training that generates measurable benefits.• Make compliance training more engaging and impactful, not one size fits all.• Remain relevant as advances in technology shift compliance expectations in the years ahead. By putting the learner first, you can develop compliance that sticks.

IMPACT: 21st Century Change Management, Behavioral Science, Digital Transformation, and the Future of Work (Leading…

$19.99

Change is inevitable, whether it represents progress is up to us. Astute leaders know that upskilling, culture change, and mindset are critical ingredients for successful digital change – but do not know how to change those quickly enough to keep up with pace of technological change. That is because our 20th century change models are not up to the challenge of 21st century digital transformation and the future of work – and that explains McKinsey’s finding that only 25% of digital transformations succeed. In Impact, globally recognized culture change expert, Paul Gibbons gives leaders 21st century change tools and models that are based on up-to-the-minute research in behavioral sciences, complexity theory, agile methods, information science, and more. Gibbons shows leaders that “the more technologically-enabled workplaces become (AI and robotics), paradoxically, the more important the “human” becomes – community, purpose, connection, empathy, relationships, and trust.” He continues, “… central to the whole picture of changing how we change, of humanizing business, and of upskilling workforces, is leadership. In a world where advancing human capability is critical, leaders need to lead learning.” Then, using that idea of leader as learner, Gibbons illustrates and how learning can happen faster and more efficiently through understanding the latest research and making appropriate use of 21st century learning technology. Impact is about leading change, and about those “upgrades” to the human side of organizations, leading, learning, communicating, changing, collaborating, deciding, and engaging. As computers do more of our thinking for us, taking over many of our cognitive tasks, our “competitive advantage” is in the social domain. Crudely, we can outsource some of our thinking, but not much of our collaboration. The upside is liberation from cognitive drudgery; the challenge is to raise our game and to become better at what makes us distinctively human – the social, the collaborative, the creative, the visionary.Leaders will learn through case studies from leading business (such as Google and Microsoft) and insights from the latest “human sciences” which will show them that – “shared purpose is more important than traditional incentives; empathy, trust, and psychological safety beat old school methods of behavior change; behavioral science sometimes produces major results through small tweaks to the environment; constant engagement works better than town halls, workshops, and focus groups; and technology-enabled dialog with stakeholders works better than surveys do.” Gibbons, author of the change bestseller The Science of Organizational Change, illustrates the inauthenticity of using analog methods to drive digital change and the irony of using 20th-century change management practices with millennial workforces. Then Impact walks through the most hallowed change models, points out their flaws, and suggests updates, based upon principles such as: human-centered, technology-enabled, systemic, creative, scalable, and a based on a holistic understanding of what inspires today’s generation of workers. The author brings a fresh, challenging voice, that of philosopher, scientist, and economist, to the world of change, strategy, and leadership. In 2017, he was voted top twenty in the world in culture change and nominated for the UK’s prestigious FRSA – Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. His popular podcast Think Bigger Think Better was voted a top twenty philosophy podcast (out of thousands globally.) He has been a business school professor, entrepreneur, CEO, consultant, an investment banker and has degrees in neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology. He is Brexit refugee living in Colorado with his two sons and an international mindsports competitor.

Leading Change: How Successful Leaders Approach Change Management

$29.05

It is often claimed that 70% of organizational change efforts fail, despite the popularity of linear change models, such as Kotter’s 8-step model. The reason few change efforts succeed as intended is because they are based on two implicit assumptions: that the leader or leadership team will come up with a vision and then succeed in persuading the rest of the organization to follow, and that people will happily embrace change without being afforded the opportunity to make their own meaning of that change.Leading Change offers an alternative.  It provides a framework for change that opens opportunities for people within the organization to play a significant role in the process.  Supported by academic research, and grounded with a range of examples and cases, the book offers a valuable approach to successful change management.

Leading Exponential Change: Go beyond Agile and Scrum to run even better business transformations

$22.00

Leading Exponential Change (second edition, May 2019) unveils the secrets of Enterprise Agility.The way companies manage change has undergone dramatic shifts, and organizations have tried to adapt to relentless market innovations by using artificial intelligence, Big Data, the Scrum Framework, increasingly connected people, and new mind-sets such as Agile or Lean. But all these approaches have only established disruptive change as a new, relentless reality.In Leading Exponential Change, world-renowned consultant Erich R. Bühler shares the secrets that differentiate truly remarkable companies from those that fail to adapt to today’s constantly changing market conditions.During his years on the front lines, the author recognized that no two companies were the same—and that what worked in one enterprise might not work in another. He studied a wide range of organizations to determine the specific behaviors and mind-sets needed to embrace change.One thing became clear: human beings are not physiologically prepared for constant alterations in processes, roles, and ways of working. Realizing that a new approach was needed, Bühler developed a set of revolutionary principles and techniques to create responsive people and organizations that challenged traditional thinking (and many Agile concepts).Drawing on his experience as an international change consultant, the author takes you deep into why companies struggle to adapt even when they have the right people. He also analyzes the reasons some consultants face endless obstacles and resistance to change while others succeed.This groundbreaking book offers new foundations to help company leaders, managers, Agile consultants, HR representatives, mentors, and scrum masters become skilled at helping others to influence change.Here readers find five types of Agility—including Mental Agility and how to increase it! Bühler also explains two game-changing frameworks for increasing adaptability to change: the ELSA framework, ideal for environments where people welcome change, and DeLTA, which helps manage change in companies with hostile work environments.Drawing from years of experience and employing an easy-to-follow approach, Bühler also addresses the differences between Agile and Enterprise/Business Agility, explores what happens to the brain during change, explains methods for improving innovation, and teaches important concepts about organizational psychology and the neuroscience of change.Between the first and second editions, Bühler traveled around the world interviewing change consultants from different countries and cultures to verify which of his techniques had a positive impact and which ones needed to be improved.Bolstered by this new data, the second edition of Leading Exponential Change is packed with new paradigms, practices, ready-to-use tools, and real-life stories from the author and other industry-revered consultants specializing in innovation, human resources, and coaching.Paperback and ebook editions are available in Spanish (Lidera el cambio exponencial) and Portuguese (Lidere a Mudança Exponencial), and this second edition is also available on audio for listening on the go.
