I have only one objection to this otherwise fantastic book. Shaw finds it necessary to set herself aside from all the other alternative change approaches in her last chapter. I would have liked this book even more if she just had skipped that chapter.
There is a long thread of academic conversation that suggests major change is vastly complex and chaotic to say the very least. Predetermining the endpoint in major business change/re-engineering has proven to be highly unsuccessful for decades. New thinking about lasting change is called for. Dr. Shaw, in reflecting on her consulting experiences highlights these issues and, at the same time, offers an approach/mindset that change agents should seriously consider.
I can personally attest to the efficacy of such a stance in affecting change.
