See-Feel-Change
Review of the Heart of Change by John P. Kotter and Dan S. Cohen, Harvard Business School Press Book, Boston
Jim Mortensen
There is so much talk about how often change efforts in organizations fail that it could make you wonder if successful organizational change exists at all. Well, it does. And by analyzing it we can learn about how to accomplish it. And this is exactly what John Kotter and Dan Cohen have set out to do in their book the Heart of Change. Jim Mortensen from Brigham Young University has written a very interesting review of this book. This book is not yet another analysis of how change so often goes wrong but attempts to answer the precise opposite question: when does organizational change go right and what happens when it does? Mortensen briefly summarizes the book and shares some thought-provoking reflections on its content.

This article presents a simple, new, and - hopefully - sticky model to describe the solution-focused approach: the FORWARD-model.
