If you've ever wondered what's wrong in the organisation you work for, why results are poor, why departments can't work together, why the best people keep leaving and why the rest feel helpless and miserable; this is the book for you. It's an academic text and the author draws strongly from her own research in several different organisations, some of whom she cannot name so gives them her own names - have fun guessing who they are. Of particular value is the section on roadblocks to managerial innovation, or how to prevent organisational success. A definite gift for your boss, but first erase all your comments like "that's us!" or "we do that!" because there will be plenty.

_The Change Masters_ was written in 1983, and since that time organizations have become much more focused on issues of transformation, but I think employees of most companies will still recognize their organizations in these pages-- and not necessarily in the positive ways.
This book was written in aid of waking the entrepreneurial spirit of the employees of large corporations and looks closely at the ways that this can be either stifled or made possible.
Clearly written from a wealth of experience, Kanter draws on case studies of companies for whom she has worked. That experience is further supported by citations from academic research and a great deal of very strong analytical thought.

this is a really good and important book. it is for the professional and anyone interested in understanding management change and how to deal with a topic most inside the box thinkers would rather not have to deal with. I have used this book many years and am always learning from it.

Rosabeth Moss Kanter sets the stage in this book (1983) for her perceptive study of companies in her most recent book -- Supercorp -- in which she deepens her understanding (and ours) of how "change masters" are activists for what she now calls "vanguard" companies. This is a solid basis for learning how leaders lead organizations, transforming to take advantage of opportunities and overcome challenges. As a communications counselor and teacher, I consider Kanter as one of the very best guides in leadership communication.
