What penguins can teach you about Change Management

Today's New York Times features an article about the book Our Iceberg is Melting by John Kotter with Holger Rathgeber. It's an illustrated tale that demonstrates Kotter's philosophy of change management. I prefer the more extensive discussion in his best selling work Leading Change (1996) but this is accessible and a quick read for non-specialists. It's selling very, very well – 224,000 copies thus far – so it's found a niche.
