Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Change driven by information technology is moving us forward so rapidly that management is hard-pressed to keep up. Champy (Reengineering Management) and Nohria (coauthor of Beyond the Hype) have edited and contributed to a collection of 16 insightful essays designed to steer company managers safely into the future. Management guru Peter Drucker says in one piece that a typical business 20 years hence will be organized more like a hospital, a university or a symphony orchestra than like its vertical counterpart today. It will be decentralized, composed of interactive, self-disciplined specialists, with fewer intervening levels of management. Other authors describe marketing strategies that are at once global in scope and rooted locally. The reinvention process is compared to a roller coaster, whereby the strong, the agile, the mentally alert and the well prepared prevail.

From Library Journal

Champy (Reengineering Management: The Mandate for New Leadership, LJ 3/15/95) and Nohria (coauthor of Beyond the Hype: Rediscovering the Essence of Management, Harvard Business Sch., 1992) have compiled 14 articles and interviews on corporate change. Selections include pieces by prominent business scholars, e.g., Peter Drucker's "The Coming of the Organization" and John Kotter's "Leading Change: Why Transformation Efforts Fail." The book is divided into three sections: the future state (of organizations), the process of change (through changing business fundamentals or culture), and the new role of management (described as establishing identity, pursuing integrity, and nurturing initiative and creativity). While these selections are good, they can be found elsewhere; numerous books have addressed organizational change from varying angles, among them Robert Kriegel's Sacred Cows Make the Best Burgers (LJ 1/96).
