Recommendation

Consultant Robert W. Jacobs walks you through his "Real Time Strategic Change" program, which, he explains, has been successfully implemented in numerous companies and organizations. He discusses how and why it works, and points out why other commonly used change strategies don’t. Although the book achieves its mission nicely, it gets bogged down by continuous, detailed examples of each step in the process, which provide little in the way of illumination.

  • What “Real Time” strategic change is;
  • Why some commonly used change strategies are fundamentally flawed; and
  • Why creating community, involvement and empowerment is integral to strategic change success.
