These are three winning companies that are successfully implementing change in their organizations amid intensifying pressure to adapt.

Authors Gregory P. Shea and Cassie A. Solomon detail the firsthand stories of these companies—and others—in a revised and updated edition of Leading Successful Change, which was released on Tuesday and published by Wharton School Press.

Featured on CNBC and in Harvard Business Review and Fast Company, Leading Successful Change is now updated for 2020 and beyond to help leaders successfully navigate the ever-increasing pace of change.

In this edition of Leading Successful Change, Shea and Solomon share success stories and offer a tested method for leading organizational change, which they have developed over a combined 50 years of helping organizations do just that.

The authors detail how Twitter overhauled a major arm of the company after Jack Dorsey returned to the company as CEO. They outline how Viacom has achieved integration amid a massive merger. And they explain how change efforts affect large-scale global issues, describing Portugal’s approach to widespread drug addiction throughout the country.

The authors also unpack:

  • Why most change efforts fail
  • The two key tenets for making successful change
  • How to create a scene that will provide a vision of the future
  • The 8 Levers of Change, a tried-and-true method for designing the work environment to support the changes

“Few people have more experience guiding organizational change than Greg Shea and Cassie Solomon,” says Adam Grant, the Wharton School professor and New York Times–bestselling author.
