"An excellent and multifaceted tool for anyone dealing with change."
"Jeff Evans and Chuck Schaefer have created an excellent and multifaceted tool for anyone dealing with change - which reads like a road-guide but is not prescriptive. I am already using it... This easy-to-use book (has) a unique approach that provides any user with a simple and effective methodology that is clear and concrete, and at the same time avoids the danger of being "cookie cutter" in application. The authors have done a remarkable job anchoring this approach in well researched and time tested theories, without overwhelming the user in the academics... in a wonderfully effective yet simple framework... Thanks for capturing the approach that I have felt has been missing thoughout my 20 year career... in a clear and understandable form (I am glad someone finally wrote the book - and I wouldn't change a thing)!"Bill Zybach, Business Process Manager, Office of the Chief of Technology Officer, Office of the Mayor, Washington, DC
