About the Author

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Conceiving and executing change for the better has been a way of life for Nigam Arora. His passion for innovations in business and technology led to his founding of two of the fastest growing (Inc. 500) companies and numerous other ventures.

He is a nuclear physicist and electrical engineer by background with a longstanding passion for understanding group behavior under dynamic demanding business conditions. Over the years, he has experimented with different change models in a variety of situations.

Necessity is the mother of invention. Upon concluding that no methodology existed to help him successfully manage change and develop leading indicators for planning in one of his ventures, he rolled up his sleeves and plunged into action. Thus, Theory ZYX of Successful Change Management was born. Theory ZYX has been refined through original research, work, interviews, and dialogues with numerous leaders in a wide range of organizations.

Recognizing that most change management experts primarily come from the background of studying the human mind, it was obvious that he could add a new dimension to the state-of-the-art change management based on his extensive change experience in business, operations, and technology. Thus, Nigam decided to focus his energy on helping organizations benefit from Theory ZYX of Successful Change Management.

Read about this theory supposedly in relationship to stock market investing. Read excerpts on Google Books. It appears to be a collection of management consulting bromides and cliches. Also, the world has changed a lot since its publication date in 2003. Suggest anyone check it out before buying. Definitely not worth the $100 posted price - unless you have corporate expense account.

None of the reviewer's are verified purchaser's, I think they are all paid reviews. Look inside pages do not give full details on at least one of the 33 theories /concepts.

I am a project manager in a multi-country IT corporation and I was in charge of designing and managing the transition of a big team from one organisation to another. After searching several resources for some valuable insights into change management, I came across the ZYX Theory which had everything that I needed and more. It is a great source of inspiration for project leaders everywhere that are facing the same challenge as I was. This book had a decisive contribution to the success of the transition project that I managed and in the end it got me a pretty big company bonus. It now holds the top position in helpful books I came across and I will certainly use it again and again in the future as well as recommend it to others

The book hints at how change models might be used on an individual level.
Nicely presented, clear ideas. Reads as a window into group behavioiur, but
especially change as it is chosen, and then embraced or fails.

I found this book extreemly helpful in managing our change initiates. The examples are excellent. It reads like a story with humor. This subject can get real dry, but Mr. Arora takes the horror out of reading about change management. If you have a project of any kind where you are directing more than one person this book can help you succeed. I highly recommend it.

This book is a reference book that belongs on every leader's desk. As a leader, I am always creating change and challenging my people to perform at a higher level. I find myself referring to this book over and over again.
To date, I have found practical answers and deep insights into every situation I have encountered. The book is very well indexed making it easy to efficiently retrieve the information I need.

Format: Hardcover
As the CEO of a high growth company, I have to periodically change our strategies to meet new challenges. We have a great team of people, but still it takes my team longer to adopt to the changes than I would like. I was struggling with this problem for years. I have paid lot of money to consultants, but results have not been there. I received Theory ZYX book as a gift from a friend who is also a CEO.

As I read Chapter nine, a light bulb turned on; it was as though this chapter was specifically written for my company. Now I know the root cause and the solution.

I highly recommend this book to anyone dealing with change.
