Most change initiatives fail. Focus on culture to improve your odds for success. Trust in Transition breaks down the entire change process—from the initial idea to the execution phases—identifying leverage points along the way that have a profound impact on the outcomes. Bob Whipple simplifies the issues, explaining that at their core, successful transitions happen because of positive human interaction. The concepts and techniques in this book will help you successfully merge two groups into a single functional unit using successful, creative solutions.

This book:

  • presents a two-sided model contrasting the mechanical and cultural sides of a change effort
  • teaches you how to create and maintain trust during change
  • gives a clear view of the pitfalls and what to avoid
  • discusses antidotes for each issue presented and how to make reorganization efforts more effective
  • walks through a recovery process to help your people recover equilibrium.
