Review from Don Gray's Blog
thoughts about the book...If you don't have the book, get it. If you
have the book and haven't read it, do so now. This book take information
you may already know at some level, and provides a standard framework
for the 48 patterns. The authors present the patterns in a "scenario
sequence", but encourage you to add the patterns to your change agent
repertoire and use what fits at the opportune time."
Review from Michael Feathers
Extremely well written guide to the people side of the business. The first thing a consultant learns is that our work isn't technical, it's people work. Sure, we teach technical things and solve technical problems, but unless we help people change, the technical knowledge falls on the floor and lies there. This book is written for people who are charged with changing their organizations. It contains a lot of the distilled wisdom.
