These consultants at Stratics Group deftly outline the entire process of large-scale structural changes such as mergers, downsizing and hiring freezes. They also cover possible triggers to change; training employees to do their jobs differently and judging the effectiveness of a change. Unfortunately, the case studies are lackluster, and the inadvertent or deliberate roles individual employees can play in sabotaging efforts at change are given extremely short shrift. But with countless checklists and lists of positive and negative factors that managers should keep in mind, it's a good, impartial resource for keeping projects on track and double-checking that steps have been followed. Tables.
