#52books How to Change the World


#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.
