Audiobook version.

A very useful book for managing change in general. There are numerous questionnaires, which would be useful in a workshop scenario but not really enjoyable when listening.

I really like the concept that the transition period is really the most critical part of change management. This is where many changes in an organization can fail or lose momentum. I also appreciated the compassionate viewpoint towards the effect of change on affected employees.

This book was certainly useful, I would certainly attempt to put many of these concepts to work on any change that I was responsible for in the workplace. ( )

Applied Kubler-Ross' stages of dealing with terminal illness to dealing with change. Interesting. Trying to apply it too rigidly probably won't work, but an interesting idea and the process is, ime, observable.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738208248, Paperback)

The business world is a place of constant change, with stories of corporate mergers, layoffs, bankruptcy, and restructuring hitting the news every day. Yet as veteran consultant William Bridges maintains, the situational changes are not as difficult for companies to make as the psychological transitions. In the best-selling Managing Transitions, Bridges provides a clear understanding of what change does to employees and what employees in transition can do to an organization. Directed at managers and employees in today's corporations, Bridges shows how to minimize the distress and disruptions caused by change. Managing Transitions addresses the fact that it is people who have to carry out the change. When the book was originally published a decade ago, Bridges was the first to provide any real sense of the emotional impact of change and what can be done to keep it from disrupting the entire organization. With new information and commentary on layoffs, corporate suspicion, and the increasing tumult in the business world, Managing Transitions remains the definitive guide to dealing with change.
