      I decent book with wisdom on leading change management. It was hard to make connections with most of the stories because they were strongly centered 80-90s military conflict. There was also a lot of discussions on army doctrine and after action reviews (AAR). Over all I liked the book for its focus on what matters with change management. A fixed vision, clear procedures/process and flexible approach to leadership.

      This book really gave me to tools and perspective that I needed to deal with large issues in a large organization.

      I'm not usually in the habit of reading "business books," but I thought it would be interesting with an Army spin (as a vet). I think it's useful to be in a position to benefit from organizational/leadership advice when reading this book -- and since I'm not in a position professional to be in any kind of "driver's seat," I think I was not able to connect to a lot of the advice. That being said, there is good material in it. Even though the writing is a bit dated (post-Gulf War), I still think t [...]

      I am an Organization Development consultant in the tradition of Frank "Be All You Can Be" Burns, who was the Army's Organization Effectiveness guru as part of the Task Force Delta. Frank and I are the best in the world at what we do and he's dead.I have an ebook, The Leadership Secrets of 5th Wave High Performance, which is a sketch book for a PhD dissertation based on a civilian version of the Army Family Team Building program that Tradoc introduced in 1994 to fix something that got broke by Mc [...]
