Synopsis: "More than ever, leaders are expected to be the change agents of their organizations. Yet CEO turnover continues to rise and organizations continue to struggle in their efforts to confront the fearsome adaptive challenges of the global age. Epic Change is a path-breaking contribution to the study of leadership and organizational change. Based on a landmark study of 53 cases of large-scale organizational change in business, healthcare, government, education, and the non-profit sector, acclaimed thought leader and researcher, Dr. Timothy R. Clark unveils the "Power Curve of Change" framework and EPIC system for change management (Evaluate, Prepare, Implement, Consolidate) for leaders who are charged to lead high-stakes change initiatives in their organizations. Epic Change presents a strategic-level road map, along with tactical level tools, for the every-day needs of leaders who must respond to all types of adaptive challenge to remain competitive. It represents a comprehensive, research-based program for leaders who want to develop the indispensable competency of leading change in a permanently and profoundly different age.
Change rarely fails for lack of strategy?Clark shows that only the discretionary efforts of people can make change happen?and this requires leadership and energy management. The Epic Change approach has been successfully field-tested with leaders at all levels and in organizations around the world. This important resource provides leaders new research-based tools to increase and sustain the energy of any change effort."
From the Back Cover: Praise for EPIC Change
"This book, born of solid research and extensive consulting experience, convincingly shows that the new global forces of today represent the new challenge, demanding a new response, which every leader, every organization, and every culture must be transformed into. Clark's analysis surrounding the leadership of the systems approach to the four EPIC stages is comprehensive, immensely practical, engaging, and transforming of the culture at each stage in making the new strategies and initiatives work. Absolutely brilliant material!"
?Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
"Dr. Clark's EPIC Change is a neo-classic.?It is a marvelous synthesis and extension of theory and practice about individual and organizational change. The steps of Evaluation, Preparation, Implementation, and Consolidation offer a road map for successful change. The book is filled with ideas, tools, and examples that will guide any manager through the demands of making change happen."
?Dave Ulrich, professor, University of Michigan; partner, the RBL Group
"Only rarely does someone who has something profound to say know how to say it in a way that is both engaging and understandable?no matter the complexity of the topic. Dr. Clark possesses this rare skill and much to our advantage turns it on the challenge of creating EPIC change. If you're facing a complex, turbulent, and upending world?and you most certainly are?this book is for you."
?Kerry Patterson, author, Crucial Conversations

His examples and guidance have helped our organization go successfully through some pretty dramatic changes? keeping an eye on Tim's recommendations has been invaluable in ensuring success and has been a road map for the members of our team."
?Olivier Poirot, CEO, Accor North America and Motel 6
