The days of predictability and stability in organizations are gone. In today's world of rapid change, agility is a defining characteristic of successful, high-performance companies. In this environment, say Jeff Evans and Chuck Schaefer, it is essential that the ability of an organization to work at change be institutionalized. In Ten Tasks of Change, the authors offer a whole-systems approach to change at work and present you with a model for dealing with rapid and intentional change in the twenty-first-century organization. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, Evans and Schaefer give you a logical framework for: * Thinking through the objectives of the work of change * Planning the activities to achieve those objectives * Using a selection of best-practices principles to accomplish them . . . and much more!

Museums throughout the world are under increasing pressure in the wake of the 2008/2009 economic recession and the many pressing social and environmental issues that are assuming priority. The major focus of concern in the global museum community is the sustainability of museums in light of these pressures, not to mention falling attendance and the challenges of the digital world. Museums and the Paradox of Change provides a detailed account of how a major Canadian museum suffered a 40 percent loss in its operating budget and went on to become the most financially self-sufficient of the ten largest museums in Canada. This book is the most detailed case study of its kind and is indispensable for students and practitioners alike. It is also the most incisive published account of organizational change within a museum, in part because it is honest, open and reflexive. Janes is the first to bring perspectives drawn from complexity science into the discussion of organizational change in museums and he introduces the key concepts of complexity, uncertainty, nonlinearity, emergence, chaos and paradox. This revised and expanded third edition also includes new writing on strengthening museum management, as well as reflections on new opportunities and hazards for museums. It concludes with six ethical responsibilities for museum leaders and managers to consider. Janes provides pragmatic solutions grounded in a theoretical context, and highlights important issues in the management of museums that cannot be ignored.

Culture, leadership and the ability to change determine organizational performance... But 75% of organizational change programs fail - being too conceptual, organization-wide and command-and-control like. That's why change consultant Marcella Bremer developed this pragmatic approach to organizational culture, change and leadership. The starting point is the validated Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument based on the Competing Values Framework by professors Kim Cameron and Robert Quinn. Next, Bremer shows how to engage people in OCAI-workshops or Change Circles. In peer groups of 10 coworkers they develop a change plan for their teams that is also personal and focused on specific behaviors. These Change Circles of 10 use the mechanism of "Copy, Coach and Correct" within groups to help organization members to implement the change and develop those behaviors that will make a difference. This book is a pragmatic user's guide to organizational culture change. Learn the best practices from a change consultant and unleash your organization, too!
