Leading change; with a new preface by the author. (reprint, 1986)

Kotter, John P.

Harvard Business Review Press


194 pages




Writing in plain language, Kotter (Harvard Business School) presents an eight-step process for managing organizational change, with special emphasis on establishing a sense of urgency and creating a guiding coalition as the first steps. He gives guidelines on developing and communicating a vision for change, empowering employees, generating short-term wins, and anchoring new approaches in the company's culture. Successful and less-successful stories and examples come from the author's own research. The book was first published in 1996. This edition contains a new brief preface by the author, written in November 2012.
