    I just invested in myself with the HBRS 10 Must Reads Collection by Harvard Business Review Press. This series is really good because each book has 10 of the best articles published by Harvard University on each topic. I think it is a must read for any ambitious manager, new or experienced leader. It is easy to read, each book has approximately 300 pages. Each chapter is an article from great authors such as Peter F. Drucker, Theodore Levitt, Robert S. Kaplan, David P. Norton and others.

One of the things that I liked on these books is that each chapter has a box called Idea in Brief, which gives you an idea of the basic concept of the chapter and most of them has very interesting case studies as well. I highly recommend you to get this collection because will inspire you with ideas and knowledge that will accelerate both your own growth and company. Each title includes timeless advice that will be relevant regardless of an ever-changing business environment. The titles include: Leadership, Managing Yourself, The Essentials, Change Management,Managing People and Strategy. One of my favorite articles were: What Makes an Effective Executive by Peter F. Drucker (HBR’S 10 Must Reads On Leadership) Putting the Balanced Scorecard to Work by Robert S. Kaplan and David P. Norton (HBR’S 10 Must Reads The Essentials) Managing Oneself by Peter F. Drucker (HBR’S 10 Must Reads on Managing Yourself) The Real Reason People won’t Change by Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey (HBR’S 10 Must Reads On Change Management ) What Great Managers Do by Marcus Buckingham (HBR’S 10 Must Reads On Managing People) The Secrets to Successful Strategy Execution by Gary L. Neilson, Karla L. Martin, and Elisabeth Powers (HBR’S 10 Must Reads On Strategy) “Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes “ Peter F. Drucker “The ability to change constantly and effectively is made by high-level continuity.” Michael E. Porter

    First articles were better than the second half but it was nice to see different perspectives on change management.

    Good mix of essays, some that I'd say are 5-star and a couple that are real snoozers - "Good" overall. I'd recommend this book to anyone in an organization that is facing a lot of change. If you're in leadership there are probably some good insights, and if you're not in leadership you'll at least be able to get inside their heads and see what they think about.

    To begin with, I have a few recommendations here, if you are in a hurry and don't want to go through all the articles here. 1. Tipping Point Leadership- This ought to be read by everyone, but esp by people at top positions in Service Industries. It is a brilliant account of the revival of the New York Police Department, and how it was completely a one-man show! This would feel more like a well-narrated adventure story than a monotonous Change Management article. :) 2. Cracking the code of change- To begin with, I have a few recommendations here, if you are in a hurry and don't want to go through all the articles here. 1. Tipping Point Leadership- This ought to be read by everyone, but esp by people at top positions in Service Industries. It is a brilliant account of the revival of the New York Police Department, and how it was completely a one-man show! This would feel more like a well-narrated adventure story than a monotonous Change Management article. :) 2. Cracking the code of change- Again, very insightful on the types of goals you may have and how accordingly your change styles would differ! 3. Radical Change, the Quiet Way- Changes can be as easily brought by tempered, unsung heroes as by those who do so with pomp, drama & style. Makes you think: What can you, as an individual, in not a very powerful place of leadership do to bring about changes, even small changes for the better? Overall, It'd be a good learning experience for a reader from any educational/work background.

    It is a good crash course into Organisational Change, but does not add a lot if you already have familiarity with a topic. Some great classic articles on why change initiatives fail and why people have diffuculty changing. Reading through the book, had a few moments of "should remember this" - but for a book called "must reads" would have expected much more of those. It is a worthy refresher nontheless.

    As with any collection of articles, some will be better or more relevant to you than others. This collection is solid and of the quality you expect from HBR. The content spans from turnarounds to cultural shifts, covering the do's and dont's of training programs as well as how to introduce cultural change. The content here is gears towards C-Suite executives but is useful for change agents throughout all levels of an organization.

    Just like what the cover says... If you read nothing else on change management, read these 10 articles. It combined multiple views on Change along with useful tactics and strategies, that went through the individual, the teams and the organization. Highly recommended to anyone exploring the topic of Change management & transformation.

    Some of the articles are older but the collection is a great start if you are interested in change management. I was complacently new to the subject and hoped this collection is a good followup to Kotter's "Leading Change". I was not disappointed. I started to understand better the topic and it was easier to navigate trough the sea of countless titles on change and change management.

    Like most HBR books like this Ive read the content was good but it was not presented in an engaging way. I did appreciate the specific examples and ways to implement and encourage change, however improving the way the articles were written could have made them more interesting to read.

    Mostly great examples, some good ones too Several different types of change management. The anecdotal evidence was good and some of the research was better. Some of the research seemed to be in progress at the time of this publishing.

    A little dated but some sound articles in here (not all ten but enough to make it worth it).

    Few articles about change management in a large organization. Generally good stuff, but much of it is yesterdays news... Still: worth reading. Few articles about change management in a large organization. Generally good stuff, but much of it is yesterday’s news... Still: worth reading.

    Very dry material. The police change story was seen in another book. The best I got out from it is the DICE framework Duration, Integrity, Commitment, Effot. DICE score = D + (2xI) + (2XC1) + C2 + E.

    A good book for learning not only about business change strategies, but also how to organize changes in social groups of smaller sizes as well. Get your interpersonal communication skills one notch higher by seeing how people in the business booms of the 90's did it with this slightly outdated, and a little repetitive, but still useful book.

    This is a collection of essays. All together, I would rate them at three stars but the first essay, by John Kotter, is five star. It is well worth reading.

    They are definitely a good read if you are looking for guidance. While some articles (mainly collaborations or case studies of how the programs devised by the authors worked wonders) did beat around the bush, it is the veterans like Christensen Clayton, Kaplan and Norton, Kotter, Peter Drucker and many others who moved my heart through beautiful prose in argument. A real story is often more influential than those with A construction company in America type of themes and yet some researchers have They are definitely a good read if you are looking for guidance.

A real story is often more influential than those with ‘A construction company in America’ type of themes and yet some researchers have used the latter. To me, this reduced the credibility, though I understand that the research might be under a Non-Disclosure Agreement. If we analyze closely, many of the features have just been given different names, sold under different change management initiatives by different people, but actually, they are the same, revolving around the top 4 points (and Emotional Intelligence).

    Excellent book. Provides several papers on effective change management. There are a few standouts (The Real Reason People Won't Change, Why Change Programs Dont Produce Change) and a few that are a little less so (A Survival Guide for Leaders). Some of the papers in this book skip around the really hard issue of change that results in loss of headcount- so obviously in parts that its kind of annoying. The best way to approach the lessons in this book is by imagining you dont currently do anything Excellent book. Provides several papers on effective change management.

The best way to approach the lessons in this book is by imagining you dont currently do anything theyre talking about, and maybe havent even considered them before. This will allow you to evaluate your current processes against these lessons.

    Any book that has "Must Read" in its title had better deliver the goods. I can say that HBR's book on Change Management definitely delivers. The book is very well written, extremely concise, and absolutely enlightening. Indeed, I had to put the book down several times to ponder its valuable lessons. I really should have read this book ten years ago, and am disappointed that this book was not required reading during my MBA curriculum.

    I read this to help me with some major change initiatives I am dealing with at work. This book was a compilation of articles from different authors and I really liked some of the articles, but a few weren't very good in my opinion. Overall a very helpful read and applicable to the reorganizations at work and other changes were trying to bring about in a large organization.

    Instead of reading one author's take on change management, the reader was exposed to ten articles that serve to give the reader exactly the viewpoints he needs. Some articles clashed and others agreed and complemented one another and that is the beauty of HBR's collection and most representative of what reality is.

    This is a good collection of essays if you don't know a lot about change management. However, it seems limited to how leaders oversee change management, which is not so different from the study of good leadership. I was more interested in how a professional would oversee more "nuts and bolts" change management, and that's not what this book is.

    It's a pretty good summary of articles. I liked it and I thought it had many different perspectives on change. But I'm anal and therefore like to read more on each point of view. But it's a good starting point.

    I bought and read this book last year for an MBA paper I was writing. It repeats Kotter's steps for making change happen; otherwise, the book focuses on the findings of academic papers published by the authors who contribute to the book.
