About the book
Any significant organizational level change initiative is dependent on the engagement of the people working in that organization. Without engagement, change will falter and ultimately fail. Engaging Change goes behind the scenes of change management to help managers, consultants and practitioners understand why some things work and why others don't.
Engaging Change addresses current challenges such as how to understand the environmental context driving the need for change; how to initiate and sustain momentum throughout the change programme; how to institutionalize structural and behavioural change; and how to create compelling visions. With case studies from Sony, Nestlé, Redcats (who own La Redoute, for example) and the British Army, the text provides practice-based insights into the realities of leading sustainable change.

- The worlds of business and government are now in a state of perpetual change. In Engaging Change, Wilcox and Jenkins have written a refreshing and insightful book, which rightly emphasizes that the management of change is critically dependent on people and their participation and behaviour throughout the change process. It is an essential manual for all change managers.
