Our Iceberg Is Melting

No, it is not about the movie An Inconvenient Truth (lower your PC speaker volume before you click the link), but it is a book that talks about Change Management.

It is a very thin book that you can probably finish it in a morning, yet with a very good story / fable (how a coloney of penguins find a new home because their hometown’s iceberg is melting). And yes, the whole idea of the story is about how to manage change in a very solid 8 steps:

  1. Create a sense of urgency to deal with a difficult problem
  2. Put a carefully selected group in charge of guiding the change
  3. Find the sensible vision of a better future
  4. Communicate that vision so others will understand and accept it
  5. Remove as many obstacles to action as is pactical
  6. Create some sort of success quickly
  7. Never let up until the new way of life is firmly established
  8. Ensure that the changes will not be overcome by stubborn, hard-to-die traditions

A very good read and highly recommended !!
