Business consultants, Dr. Glenn Varney, Scott Janoch and James M. McFillen, share insights on how to save your company from itself

Leaders of organizations can ill afford to make mistakes in this world. Yet, nearly 70 percent of the time, major organizational alterations or adjustments fail, according to former professor of management Dr. Glenn Varney.

Together, with human resource expert Scott Janoch and consultant James M. McFillen, Varney has witnessed leaders hastily – and often poorly – execute change without properly assessing their situation. They now expose this dangerous problem, as well as present a solution in “Grasp the Situation: Lessons Learned in Change Leadership.”

“Grasp the Situation” presents a thoughtful approach to reduce the expensive failure rate, while inspiring leaders to closely examine their initiatives for making organizational changes. This instructional manual is especially helpful to Human Resource and Training Directors who are deeply involved in their organizations’ change initiatives and help management implement modifications.

Varney, McFillen and Janoch, share their collective experiences, showcasing how to avoid failures and missteps in organizations and on a personal level. What they have learned is now imparted in a simple five-step process that assures a complete grasp of the situation before implementing any form of change.

“Too often leaders jump into solving a problem or making a change without properly evaluating and assessing the situation,” Varney said. “This mentality is costly and wasteful. Grasp the Situation is a proactive approach to developing effective solutions. We present real life scenarios to help you better diagnosis and rectify troubles.”
