The pace of change has accelerated to the point of causing confusion, chaos, and the collapse of long-held beliefs, systems and institutions. Yet we can’t stop or even slow it because our problems are urgent and wicked. What we can do is learn to consciously design change in a way that improves both its outcome and experience.

For a new breed of leaders who want to make real, lasting, impactful change in any organization, Changemaker shares decades of real world experiences and practices from leading designers on how to embrace change as a leader, how to find collaborative partners who will work with you to make change, and how to design systems, structures and processes that help change succeed in organizations of any scale.
