Independent review of ECMH

12th January 2016

The Chartered Management Institute has included The Effective Change Manager's Handbook in its book club (January 2016) alongside some management classics. The reviewer was extremely positive about the book, giving it five stars and an "Excellent: must read" endorsement. Naturally, Richard Smith and all involved in writing and editing the book are thrilled with such a positive independent review! The full review reads as follows:

"This is a book which would be of principal benefit to people who are beginning to be more responsible for managing significant changes in their organisations. It would also be very useful to anyone further along the path into more senior roles, since it reviews and puts into a practical context a wide range of change, behavioural and management theories. It is full of practical and well founded advice, which would be of excellent use for anyone who is open to new learning.

"While the book is designed to be a text book for people studying for the Change Management Institute's qualifications, it is easily accessible to any young or more experienced manager with a keen interest in delivering change more effectively. It follows the 13 knowledge areas required under the Institute's knowledge components. As such it is a great resource to be dipped into for guidance or inspiration. It would also be of use to anyone studying for CMI qualifications up to and including Level 7. It is a shame that all text books are not as well informed and presented as this one.

"The book is full of well researched and academically tested information and practical guidance from successful change managers. I found that much of the advice chimed with my own experiences."
