Evaluating the Success of Strategic Change against Kotter's Eight Steps
Spencer, Mark H.; Winn, Bradley A.
Planning for Higher Education, v33 n2 p15-22 Dec-Feb 2004-2005
New subscribers to the "Harvard Business Review" receive as a bonus with their first issue a compilation of fifteen classics, which appeared in previous "HBR" issues. One article, "Leading Change: Why Transformation Efforts Fail", by John P. Kotter, first appeared in the March-April 1995 issue and is often referenced as a guide to strategic change in organizations. It is the purpose of the article to evaluate a change process undertaken at a large comprehensive baccalaureate institution in the context of Kotter's suggested eight steps in transforming an organization.
