About the book
The Effective Change Manager's Handbook helps practitioners, employers and academics define and practise change management successfully and develop change management maturity within their organization.
A single-volume learning resource covering the range of knowledge required, it includes chapters from established thought leaders on topics ranging from benefits management, stakeholder strategy, facilitation, change readiness, project management and education and learning support. Endorsed by the Change Management Institute and the official guide to the CMI Body of Knowledge, The Effective Change Manager's Handbook covers the whole process from planning to implementation, offering practical tools, techniques and models to effectively support any change initiative.
The editors of The Effective Change Manager's Handbook - Richard Smith, David King, Ranjit Sidhu and Dan Skelsey - are all experienced international consultants and trainers in change management. All four editors worked on behalf of the Change Management Institute to co-author the first global change management body of knowledge, The Effective Change Manager, and are members of the APMG International examination panel for change management.

- This is a book which would be of principal benefit to people who are beginning to be more responsible for managing significant changes in their organisations. It would also be very useful to anyone further along the path into more senior roles, since it reviews and puts into a practical context a wide range of change, behavioural and management theories.... The book is full of well-researched and academically tested information and practical guidance from successful change managers.... 5 stars: Exceptional, a must read for any manager or leader.
