Leading change by John P Kotter ( Book )
37 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 4,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What will it take to bring your organization successfully into the twenty-first century? The world's foremost expert on business leadership distills twenty-five years of experience and wisdom based on lessons he has learned from scores of organizations and businesses to write this visionary guide. The result is a very personal book that is at once inspiring, clear-headed, and filled with important implications for the future." "The pressures on organizations to change will only increase over the next decades. Yet the methods managers have used in the attempt to transform their companies into stronger competitors - total quality management, reengineering, right sizing, restructuring, cultural change, and turnarounds - routinely fall short, says Kotter, because they fail to alter behavior." "Emphasizing again and again the critical need for leadership to make change happen, Leading Change provides the vicarious experience and positive role models for leaders to emulate. The book identifies an eight-step process that every company must go through to achieve its goal, and shows where and how people - good people - often derail."--BOOK JACKET

Corporate culture and performance by John P Kotter ( Book )
24 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Going far beyond previous empirical work, John Kotter and James Heskett provide the first comprehensive critical analysis of how the "culture" of a corporation powerfully influences its economic performance, for better or for worse. Through painstaking research at such firms as Hewlett-Packard, Xerox, ICI, Nissan, and First Chicago, as well as a quantitative study of the relationship between culture and performance in more than 200 companies, the authors describe how shared values and unwritten rules can profoundly enhance economic success or, conversely, lead to failure to adapt to changing markets and environments." "With penetrating insight, Kotter and Heskett trace the roots of both healthy and unhealthy cultures, demonstrating how easily the latter emerge, especially in firms which have experienced much past success. Challenging the widely held belief that "strong" corporate cultures create excellent business performance, Kotter and Heskett show that while many shared values and institutionalized practices can promote good performances in some instances, those cultures can also be characterized by arrogance, inward focus, and bureaucracy--features that undermine an organization's ability to adapt to change. They also show that even "contextually or strategically appropriate" cultures--ones that fit a firm's strategy and business context--will not promote excellent performance over long periods of time unless they facilitate the adoption of strategies and practices that continuously respond to changing markets and new competitive environments."

Matsushita Leadership : lessons from the 20th century's most remarkable entrepreneur by John P Kotter ( Book )
7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
He was one of the most inspirational role models of all time. Thrown into poverty at age four, Konosuke Matsushita (Mat-SOSH-ta) struggled with the early deaths of family members, an apprenticeship which demanded sixteen-hour days at age nine, all the problems associated with starting a business with neither money nor connections, the death of his only son, the Great Depression, the horror of World War II in Japan, and more. Yet John P. Kotter shows how, instead of being ground down by these hardships, Matsushita grew to be a fabulously successful entrepreneur and business leader, the founder of Japan's General Electric: the $65 billion a year Matsushita Electric Corporation. His accomplishments as a leader, author, educator, philanthropist, and management innovator are astonishing, and outshine even Soichiro Honda, J.C. Penny, Sam Walton, and Henry Ford. In this immensely readable book, Kotter relates how Matsushita created a large business, invented management practices that are increasingly being used today, helped lead his country's economic miracle after World War II, wrote dozens of books in his latter years, founded a graduate school of leadership, created Japan's version of a Nobel Prize, and gave away hundreds of millions to good causes. Matsushita Leadership is both a biography and a set of lessons for careers and corporations in the 21st century. An inspirational story and a business primer, the implications are powerful, for organizations and for living a meaningful life

Buy-in saving your good idea from getting shot down by John P Kotter ( Recording )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A good idea or the right decision needs support or it will not be accepted and implemented well. The proposal is shot down, accepted but without sufficient support to gain all of its true benefits, or slowly dies a sad death. All those who would benefit from the idea lose. You lose. In an extreme case, a whole company or nation may lose. Kotter demonstrates that it doesn't have to be that way
