Lean Change Management 2nd Edition

A Feedback-driven Approach to Change

About the Book

This book sample is the first full chapter of the upcoming 2nd Edition of Lean Change Management.  You can learn more about the 2nd Edition via Happy Melly Express.

Organizational changes are designed and planned with the best of intentions. Yet, according to various studies, these change initiatives fail 70% of the time. Often, planning isn't the problem. No matter how thorough you are, it is impossible to predict how the people affected by the change will ultimately react.

Lean Change Management is a book designed to help you understand how to approach and execute changes within your organization based on feedback-driven methods. It adapts to people's reactions to the changes, rather than trying to predict them all. Lean Change combines ideas from Lean Startup, neuroscience and the Agile and Lean worlds. It walks you through the process of defining, implementing and discovering the changes you need to help your organization.

Lean Change is the first book in the Happy Melly Express publishing project. When funded, it will include: the book, Video tutorials, additional templates, guides to walk you through your first Lean Change. If you select the Sponsor or Godfather backer level, you will also have the opportunity to participate in a Hangout with Jason Little the author of the book. 

This book is a translation into English of Lean Change Management which was originally written in English.
