The term "Change Management" has been a standard part of the world of commerce, and also widely used in environmental and social circles for many years now. However, putting effective change management practices into place, and sustaining them, has proven to be a lesson in frustration for many. Co-author Alan AtKisson will share uncommon lessons from Parachuting Cats into Borneo. Named after a classic tale of unintended consequences, this book delivers tools that help leaders and others put their change initiatives on track now, and keep them in place over the long term.
