Ensuring the Future of Organizations

by Dr Victor S.L. Tan

Ceo of KL Strategic Change Consulting

"Change in the business environment is occuring at an accelerating pace. The message for companies in the twenty-first century is crystal clear: if you don't drive your business, you will be driven out of business. Responsive organisations will emerge as change winners, while reactive organisations will become change victims."



In his second book on managing strategic change, Victor Tan provides the reader with a detailed guide on how to understand, recognise, alter and manage people's mindsets so that the organisation becomes more adept at managing change in our increasingly turbulent markets:

The book explains in detail: 


  • The forces of change

  • The rationale for change

  • The obstacles to change within organizations

  • The different kinds of mindsets

  • How to change people's mindsets

  • The characteristics of change winners

  • Models to use in managing change

  • How to create a positive environment for change
