Part IV. How Leaders Can Manage Culture Change

In Part IV, we turn to the difficult question of how to change culture when the normal evolutionary processes are not working or are too slow. Chapter Seventeen provides a general model of "managed change" that needs to be understood by leaders when they function as "change agents" whether or not culture change is the primary issue.
