The Change Equation
The Change Equation is a practical ‘how to’ guide to using a set of models and tools which have been developed to help senior managers de-risk their change projects. It shows readers how to:

– understand the underlying reasons why change projects fail to deliver the expected benefits
– identify the causes of actual or potential failure
– quantify the key barriers to success, and
– take the appropriate action to overcome these.

The approach addresses the dual core of a change programme: processes and people. It has been researched and refined with the input of a wide range of experts in the field.
