Personnel professionalism requires directors and managers to keep fully abreast of current business strategy; the "Developing Strategies" series provides the tools for them to make a full contribution to organizational success. Effective strategic change leadership means seeing beyond day-to-day issues and forging a new vision for the business. It means using influence to get other on board or facilitating them to achieve results. It also means choosing the right style - flexible, participative or more controlling - to adopt in specific circumstances. This title enables potential change leaders to think through the issues, assess their core skills, put them into context and proceed to action. Questionnaires test different kinds of leadership ability. Case studies spell out lessons learned at Allied Domecq Wines and Spirits, Courage Breweries and Do It All, Grattan, Reckitt & Colman Products, the Quicks and TSB Groups, while frank extended interviews with key players at Smurfit Composites and UK Paper offer many insiders' insights into achieving change. Brian Wallace and Christopher Ridgeway are the authors of "Empowering Change".
