Abstract

HBR OnPoint Articles save you time by enhancing an original Harvard Business Review article with an overview that draws out the main points and an annotated bibliography that points you to related resources. This enables you to scan, absorb, and share the management insights with others. Managers need a new way to think about managing change in today''s knowledge organization. Instead of breaking change into small pieces - TQM, process re-engineering, employee empowerment - and then managing these pieces, managers need to think in terms of overseeing a dynamic. Managing change is like balancing a mobile. Achieving this critical balance means managing the conversation between the people leading the change effort and those who are expected to implement the new strategies; creating an organizational context in which change can occur; and managing emotional connections, which have traditionally been banned from the workplace but are essential for a successful transformation. One tool that companies can use is the Transition Management Team, a group of company leaders that oversees the corporate change effort and ensures that leaders and followers work together to create their future.
