Well worth my time

If Change Management is your thing, this is a must listen. A lot of the information was deep but never boring. It opened my eyes to knowledge about Change Management. The real life stories used as examples helped with the understanding.

It was excellent. Easy, enjoyable and informative.

This book greatly offered perspective to the information given to me in my MBA program. Extremely affordable and worth every penny. Highly recommended!

Awesome researched materials to apply right now

Love it from the beginning to end. I especially liked the revelation that one does not need formal authority to effect change in an organization.

Engaging and very informative

You will learn a lot from this book. It's a bit overwhelming, but you'll be sure to go back and re-read chapters and reference key points. I totally recommend this for all managers and leaders!

Good Information, just dated

The articles were good, but felt like they were dated. There were not any surprises or revelations if you have read at least one book or article regarding change management. Would like to have heard articles from the last few years on how firms are dealing with change in hyper competitive markets and multigenerational workforce. Overall a good collection that compliment each other.

Bit out dated really

Some of the papers are 25 years old so although the ideas are good, things have moved on since then. Narration is a bit dull and I resent that the female narrator only gets to read the one paper or of ten written by a women.
Get with the times, HBR!

Great Cross Section of CM Case Examples

Enjoyable Interesting & Useful if only perhaps a bit dated from the 90's era? Worthy kick starter examples of Change Management in big business organisations. Offering sound framework, best practices, and systems for change management. Uncertain how these will work in the smaller organisation, but I feel they are helpful, de-scalable and remain relevant. Especially like the additional 'Ideas in Brief' and the 'Ideas in Practice' side bards too! Definitely recommend this text for any MBA'r wishing to learn and trace back CM initiatives and successes stories for winning solutions.
