Das Management von Veränderung ist zur zentralen Herausforderung für Führungskräfte geworden. Und die Dynamik des Wandels in Gesellschaft und Unternehmen nimmt immer noch zu. Wer stehen bleibt, hat schon verloren. Das Buch zeigt, worauf es ankommt, damit Veränderungen zu einer sinnvollen und erfolgreichen Geschichte werden. Gutes Change Management erschöpft sich nicht in einer technischen Abfolge von Maßnahmen. Die Kraft für Veränderungsprojekte entsteht aus dem Willen aller Beteiligten. Nur wem es gelingt, die eigene Mannschaft auf dem Weg wirklich mitzunehmen, wird sein Ziel erreichen. Das Urbild für wirksame Führung findet Michael Loebbert in der Bibel: Moses führt sein Volk durch die Wüste ins Gelobte Land. Der Autor vermittelt vor diesem Hintergrund eine klare und nachvollziehbare Dramaturgie für Veränderungsprozesse, die den Leser selbst nicht unverändert lassen wird.
