They convince the senior management penguins and plan the change with a selected team of change agents. They manage to convince the other penguins that action is needed, get a quick win and manage to successfully change.

After that, there are a few pages explaining the eight-step process for change that was taken from John Kotter's research and his earlier books on managing change.

The pages aren't enough to get an in-depth understanding of Kotter's research, but for that, you will need to read Kotter's other work. The story was easy to read as it was simple simplistic?

I found it mildly interesting. There wasn't much news in this book if you are already familiar with Kotter's research, but then again it doesn't take much time to read as the book is very thin. The book wasn't bad, but I would probably not recommend it to anyone either as it was definitively not a book that impressed me. I was thinking about 2 or 3 stars.

Decided to go with 3 as it does seem to achieve its own purpose. Just ok. Change Management Of all the principles, models, and frameworks I've learned through my recently completed MBA program, the Kotter model for change management will undoubtedly stick with me the most. And I really believe that this book is the reason for that resonance.

Written in a style that everyone can understand, even possibly my 3 year old daughter, this short, illustrated book, offers a crash course in effective change management. I couldn't help but look at my organization in a different light after walking through the 8 steps explained in the book. Ever since, I can asses any new situation where change is in question by asking how it applies to the "penguin book.

If you work in a large bureaucracy, this book is a MUST read. This book was like a therapist. At the suggestion of a colleague, I ordered multiple copies for the board of my church. I asked them to read it, then used the book for discussion during a considerable portion of a full-day retreat.

Everyone related to it well. It was neither too academic nor patronizing for the career professionals who participated. One person found this helpful. This book was pretty fun to read. I had to read it for an assignment and the entire analogy is pretty obvious, but it really comes together at the end when the 8 steps are written out and explained. It is a very useful book as I used the 8 step method in one of my student groups and we saved 3 days of planning when an event we wanted to put on was not working.

It was really impressive how effective the result was and how stupid I felt for how obvious it was to get to these results. Very effective book and very helpful as well to any student of management or even officers of a student group. For the first time, there is a glitch in the process.
