Stephen Haines has some perspectives worth consideration. Drawing from his Naval Academy training, a wide array of examples, and systems science, his focus is on strategic management and organizational change. I have had his company's site bookmarked for some time, but it was only yesterday that I watched his free executive overview of "Leading Strategic and Cultural Change".
Here are three things I really liked:
"“If the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside,the end is near.” Quoting Jack Welch
Clarity and simplicity = success (simplicity wins the game every time)
State of the Art Best Practice:
Problem: Lacking the Organizational Capacity for Change
Best Practice: Invest in, Hire and Develop the Capacity to make change succeed
And there's more great stuff. If you're interested in leading change in organizations, be sure to check it out.
