The key to implementing successful change programs lies in the
development of the "compact", a renewal of the total relationship
between the individual and the organization. Successful change only
happens when individuals are able to renew their occupational,
economic, social and psychological commitments to the organization
in the context of change initiatives. The Change Pact shows how to
create, develop and implement these contracts as part of a program
of ongoing commitment to change. Paul Strebel is an expert on
strategic change management, especially the anticipation of
industry breakpoints, and the design of new compacts (commitments)
to support on going change. "Paul has captured the essence of
successful change implementation - that real change requires the
commitment of your entire workforce. Reading this book will
convince managers that they must approach their employees in an
individual, differentiated way to gain their commitment and ensure
their organization's future success. This book should appear on the
shelves of academics, strategists and practitioners alike." - WJ
Alexander, Chief Executive, Thames Water Plc "Getting people to
commit fully has become a key to successful ongoing change. This
book provides an essential guide to those involved in creating that
competence in organizations, focusing on the critical relationships
between the people in the organization and those leading the
change. It makes excellent reading." - Nick Ferguson, Managing
Director, Schroders "This book shows how successful change leaders
get their people to commit to rapid on-going change, how to
mobilize Change Agents, Bystanders and Traditionalists, while
dealing with Resistors in radically different situations. Strebel
has written a book that is essential reading for those who want to
go beyond one-time change to continual change that outpaces the
competition." - Dr Egon Zehnder, Chairman, Egon Zehnder
International "Change is the adrenalin without which a corporation
becomes moribund and irrelevant. Paul Strebel has, in masterful
fashion, marshalled the practical steps to harness its power.
Invaluable reading for any executive team determined to lead the
field." - Selwyn MacFarlane, Deputy Chairman, South African
Breweries Group "A good book for any change manager keen to tackle
the complexities of a process of this kind and the interplay
between its ecological, social and psychological components and
considerations." - Philippe Bruggisser, Chairman of the Board, SAir
