About the Book: The change management charade happens when the senior leadership, the change team, and others are involved in an absurd pretence intended to create a pleasant or respectable appearance of organisational change implementation. The leaders continue to focus on normal day-to-day operations devoid of change leadership responsibilities and are permitted to do so by the change team or consultants, deluding themselves that they can implement successful change while the leaders control critical resources and agenda time.

"Organisational change management implementation where the leaders of the organisation and the change team are involved in an absurd pretence intended to create a pleasant or respectable appearance of change”

Leadership of Change® Volume 8 delves into the twelve key protagonists involved in the pretence of change implementation. The author highlights the important roles the protagonists could play in not only successful organisational change but also in improving society, which is often forgotten. However, some of these protagonists play change lip service, they give hollow speeches to the shiny new initiatives that go nowhere. Others provide simplistic solutions, they may even be motivating, but in reality, they lack the practicality needed to address the massive holistic challenge of organisational change management. Their approach to change is a misdirection of the hard work, effort, discipline, and considerable dedication that are required by an exceptional team supported through wider stakeholder collaboration as well as effective and proactive change leadership.
