"Anyone contemplating a reorganisation would do well to read this book..." -- Financial Times ADVANCE PRAISE for ReOrg: Dominic Barton, Global Managing Director, McKinsey & Company-- "ReOrg focuses on business results, not buzzwords. It's the book that I'll be recommending to clients and colleagues." Lord John Browne of Madingley, former CEO, BP; Executive Chairman, L1 Energy-- "How you deliver a reorganization is as important as what design you develop. Heidari-Robinson and Heywood capture that simply and effectively here. This is an invaluable book for anyone leading a reorganization." Lady Barbara Judge, CBE, Chairman, Institute of Directors; former Chairman, United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority; and former Commissioner, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission-- "An extremely useful and practical book. It will be an invaluable guide for executives at any level who are considering doing a reorganization of part or all of their company." Sir Andrew Witty, CEO, GlaxoSmithKline-- "Modern business demands extraordinary nimbleness and the willingness to change in order to compete and keep up. The inevitable reorganizations need to be done right the first time, every time. ReOrg is an ideal thought provoker." Sir Suma Chakrabarti, President, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development-- "This book will be invaluable for managers in both the public and private sectors faced with the challenge of leading a reorganization. It lays out clearly how managers can make a reorganization happen in a way that achieves the organization's objectives while also remaining conscious of the cost (both actual and human) of the change and seeking to minimize it." Ana Botin, Executive Chairman, Santander-- "Reorganizations are inevitable in any business. Heidari-Robinson and Heywood are frank about the challenges and offer practical solutions. I highly recommend this book to business leaders thinking of reorganizing their companies."
