Most organizations that seek to change fail. The central reason: employees are relying on obsolete "mental maps" that prevent them from observing changes in their business environment, responding effectively, or following through on changes they've begun. In Leading Strategic Change, two leading organizational consultants and researchers offer a start-to-finish strategy for helping employees redraw their mental maps -- and unleashing their power to support effective change.
