"This book provides individuals who work with organization change a rare gift by providing a glimpse into the mind and thinking of internal organization consultants. Experienced and beginning consultants will find the insights and information interesting and useful." -- John D. Carter Ph.D., President, Organization & Systems Development Center, Gestalt Institute of Cleveland
This is a refreshing book to read because it provides real life scenarios regarding issues and dilemmas faced by internal organization development professionals in a very straightforward and open manner. The combination of personal anecdotes from former internal consultants with fundamental organization development theory provides internal consultants "at all levels" a solid resource for practicing their work. -- Mary Choi, Vice President Organization Development, The Patent & License Exchange, Inc.
What an extraordinary resource! Bev Scott has articulated the "inside baseball" of consulting. I only wish I had been fortunate enough to have such a wise and inspiring mentor early in my career. This book is not only an invaluable resource for those new to the internal consulting role, but provides guidance, support, and insight to all of us who do our work at the margins. Buy it, read it, and give it to everyone you know in the field. -- B. Kim Barnes, C.E.O.. Barnes & Conti Associates, Inc.
