Every year corporations spend billions of dollars in pursuit of change. Some are successful. Many are not. Uniting the perspectives of economics, business management and psychology, and casting a critical eye over the big change efforts of more than 30 organizations worldwide, Paul Taffinder brings together the practical action steps needed for business leaders to develop a strategic and tactical route–map for transforming their firms. He shows that real transformation demands an escalation of constructive conflict to produce and sustain the kind of radical change essential in organizations in a globalizing world. The executive actions to achieve big change across all sectors of business are constructed through detailed examples, international case studies and action lists.
