Abstract : John Kotters 1996 book Leading Change2 is popular among U.S. Army War College students and with good reason. The book, and its subsequent editions, is well-written, easy to read, and appears simple to apply toward one of the more vexing challenges facing senior military leaders how to transform a large, complex organization. His eight-step model provides a straightforward template for students to apply their experiences and develop initial diagnoses and potential solutions for any organization, all within the confines of a course paper or year-long research project. As both an introduction to theories of organizational change and a tool in the students leadership kit bag, Kotters Leading Change suits the foundational needs of students entering their future roles as senior leaders.
