Any significant organizational level change initiative is dependent on the engagement of the people working in that organization. Without engagement, change will falter and ultimately fail. Engaging Change goes behind the scenes of change management to help managers, consultants and practitioners understand why some things work and why others don't. Engaging Change addresses current challenges such as how to understand the environmental context driving the need for change; how to initiate and sustain momentum throughout the change programme; how to institutionalize structural and behavioural change; and how to create compelling visions. With case studies from Sony, Nestle, Redcats (who own La Redoute, for example) and the British Army, the text provides practice-based insights into the realities of leading sustainable change.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Whilst leaders/managers may initiate and design change, they most certainly do not deliver it: your people do that through engagement from the start. Engaging Change provides compelling evidence that if you get engagement wrong, then your change effort will fail. I wholeheartedly commend this book."--Major-General Keith Cima "CB "
"'Engagement is a participation sport' is one of my favourite lines in Engaging Change. There are lots of experts and models around change, but few seem to focus on harnessing the energy and wisdom of the people most impacted by the change. Wilcox and Jenkins give a great illustration of how doing this not only makes great business sense, it's the only way to successfully implement real change."--Roy White, Senior Vice President Human Resources "Sony Mobile "
"Engaging Change draws upon a unique combination of experiences from both corporate and military operational environments to deliver a succinct insight into the requirements for 'effective' change management. It is this unique insight that makes it a compelling read, and a valuable asset to anyone involved in the change management process. Change doesn't just happen, it is made to happen and this book will help practitioners towards making it a success."--Steve Pearson, CEO "RemVoX Global Communications Group and author of Success Breeds Success "
"The worlds of business and government are now in a state of perpetual change. In Engaging Change, Wilcox and Jenkins have written a refreshing and insightful book, which rightly emphasizes that the management of change is critically dependent on people and their participation and behaviour throughout the change process. It is an essential manual for all change managers."--Professor Ian Wallace, Pro-Vice-Chancellor - Defence and Security "Cranfield University "
"When we set out to transform the performance of my division's front office at a leading turnkey rail contractor, we turned to Mark W and Mark J, two hardcore, no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is practitioners who rolled up their sleeves to make it happen with us. Now in Engaging Change they have opened up their treasure chest of experience from working on dozens of varied change assignments to share their wisdom with the next generation of managers assembling their toolbox for the challenges ahead. Insightful and refreshing reading!"--Eran Gartner, CEO "Megalim Solar Power Ltd "
