#52 Books – How to Change the World: Change Management 3.0
Format: Softcover Booklet
Jurgen Appelo has taken 4 common models and combined them into what he calls a “supermodel.”
- Dance with the System – PDCA or Plan, Do, Check, Act
- Mind the People – AKDAR or Ability, Knowledge, Desire, Awareness, and Reinforcement
- Stimulate the Network – the Adoption Curve and focusing on the right people
- Change the Environment – the 5 I or Information, Identity, Incentives, Infrastructure, and Institutions
He then goes into some detail about what he has learned as a management consultant as he applied the models. There are some quick-shot ideas to try and stories of what worked and what didn’t in his consulting practice.
I’m a fan of this approach. No need to reinvent the wheel and develop a complicated framework with new terminology. The 4 models he selected have become 21st century classics for a reason.
This booklet is a quick introduction into change agency and a jumping-off point for deeper study and worth a 45 minute read.
