“An essential guide for any professional interested in understanding how to implement and influence change”
Prof. Adam Boddison, – Chief Executive, Association for Project Management
Leading change in organizations is always hard, but this original, game-based handbook will at least make it much more fun! Based on real-life case studies and reflecting the most common challenges facing any change ninja, this is a story where you get to make the decisions at each stage, and discover the impact of your choices.**
This interactive approach will appeal particularly to non-linear thinkers and those who learn best through action and application. It’s pragmatic, focusing on tips for getting people on board and on identifying small, doable ‘ninja moves’ that gain traction and build momentum by stealth.
After lots of training in things like project management, agile change and leadership, Dr Tammy Watchorn discovered none of this really helped as the focus was always on process rather than people. By understanding how people work instead, she soon found she could deliver successful change by stealth with ninja moves.
An accessible guide to undertaking change..
I read this book in one day, it was a joy, I can’t recommend it highly enough. A primer for change managers novice or experienced alike.
Dr Tammy Watchorn is an absolute inspiration, such an engaging book, a must read for anyone…and I mean anyone, it really makes you think about change in a different way. We all fear change but not when you are a Change Ninja..Very much looking forward to the next volume
There are lots of books about the psychology of change management but this is a rare and engaging way of learning the consequences of one’s own decisions on how to manage change, and that means we are learning and adapting as we progress this fun and interactive adventure.
This is the type of book you keep by your side and revisit regularly. I think each time you read it you’d learn more about yourself and change.
…a great practical tool with real life scenarios that help me to understand change resistance, behaviours and responses – and plan my next move to address that hard-to-crack area of culture change within a transformation programme.
This book on change has such a unique voice and concept. The choose your own adventure style keeps what could be another drab entry in the change management pantheon… fresh and easy to connect with. It feels practical and helpful in the way other books in this category need translation.
Immersive, un-put-downable, hilarious, packed with learning and tools…
Buy this book, read it, have fun, put the learning into practice, make a difference!
