This eBook explains how to undertake a strategic review and it suggests ways of avoiding the pitfalls of change management where business change is seen as a one-off effort to move an organisation from where it is to some fixed future state. It also considers the need for continuous change and how really listening can ensure you are alert to the adjustments and innovation that’s needed. It is intended for leaders and mangers in small to medium sized organisations and offers them coaching questions which support good leadership and management.It is about how to make sure that your organisation is the most successful it can be by listening to and working with the people and the systems upon whom it depends for its existence. It is about building a healthy organisation which can deliver high levels of performance over time. It is about how to manage change in a way which gets the best out of people because they feel settled, valued and motivated.
