According to David Pells, PM World Library director, “HBR’s 10 Must Reads on Change Management is one of the best resources on the change management topic that I’ve ever come across. I found it in the PMI Bookstore at the PMI Global Congress a couple of years ago. These are all good books by some of America’s leading management thinkers with a great deal of wisdom inside. And the summaries capture most of the main points.”

“Purchasing or reading all of these books would be virtually impossible for most people,” Pells adds. “The summaries on the other hand can be read in a couple of sittings, with a vast amount of knowledge and insights gained. I didn’t even know many of these books existed. Now we are excited to provide access to these valuable resources.”
