Proven change strategies for tapping human potential in organizations and communities

This extensively updated new edition of the classic bestseller features profiles of sixty-one change methods by the originators and foremost practitioners of such high-leverage change methods as Appreciative Inquiry, the World Café, Six Sigma, Future Search, and Open Space Technology. Each author outlines distinctive aspects of their approach, answers frequently asked questions, and provides case studies and references to learn more. A one-stop comparative chart helps you determine which methods will work best for you, along with chapters on mixing and matching and sustaining results. This tremendously expanded second edition is the definitive resource in the exciting area of engaging "whole systems" of people to create their own future.

"What the Encyclopedia Britannica does for facts and the Oxford English Dictionary does for words, this book does for changing whole systems (both organizations and communities). A definite reference must for your organizational book shelf."
--Martin Rutte, coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work

"Get ready to re-think your work and have it set in a larger perspective. This book is for those seeking a pragmatic blend of spirit and practice. It is the best book on large system change methods, bar none."
--Geoff Bellman, Consultant and author of The Consultant's Calling

"A treasure trove that, with disciplined application, can ignite a performance step change in an individual or organization. Its extremely practical tone brings distilled `What to do' insight and remarkable `How it works' clarity to each tool. This will be an invaluable contribution to even the best change agents in the world."
--Tony Singarayar, Senior Director, Business Models/Business Case, Advanced Technologies, Johnson & Johnson Consumer and Personal Products Worldwide

"The Change Handbook is what I turn to when I want to review a process I have run before or select to a new one. Invaluable for all facilitators who want to rise above the ordinary!"
--Gifford Pinchot III, President, The Bainbridge Graduate Institute, and author of Intrapreneuring

"A terrific resource. I highly recommend this book to change leaders who want to find and learn about methods for creating and sustaining change."
--Francis M. Duffy, PhD, Professor of Change Leadership in Education, Gallaudet University
