The successful completion of a change project is an indicator for the professionalism of a company. Whether the changes are crises that must be met, mergers in which different cultures have to grow together or changes in the structures and processes, the management and employees feel constantly challenged by a changing environment. Only those who manage these changes professionally during ongoing operations with minimal stress will be successful in the future. The book not only explains different change management approaches but also provides numerous checklists and best practice examples.
