Abstract:

"A new edition of the classic business parable that has sold more than a million copies since 2006. Our Iceberg Is Melting is a simple fable about doing well in an ever-changing world. Based on the award-winning work of Harvard's John Kotter, it is a story that has been used to help thousands of people and organizations. The fable is about a penguin colony in Antarctica. A group of beautiful emperor penƯguins live as they have for many years. Then one curious bird discovers a potentially devastating problem threatening their home--and pretty much no one listens to him. The characters in the story, Fred, Alice, Louis, Buddy, the Professor, and NoNo, are like people we recognize--even ourselves. Their tale is one of resistance to change and heroic action, seemingly intractable obstacles and the most clever tactics for dealing with those obstacles. It's a story that is occurring in different forms all around us today--but the penguins handle the very real challenges a great deal better than most of us. Our Iceberg Is Melting is based on pioneerƯing work that shows how Eight Steps produce needed change in any sort of group. It's a story that can be enjoyed by anyone while at the same time providing invaluable guidance for a world that just keeps moving faster and faster"--

"A new edition of the classic business parable that has sold more than a million copies since 2006. For the past decade, millions of managers have found inspiration and guidance from John Kotter's highly acclaimed business fable, Our Iceberg is Melting. Based on his award-winning research at Harvard Business School, it has helped thousands of organizations cope with rapid and unwelcome change. The fable is about a penguin colony in Antarctica, where a group of beautiful emperor penguins live as they have for many years. Then one curious bird discovers a potentially devastating problem that threatens their home ... and pretty much no one listens to him. The penguin characters -- Fred, Alice, Louis, Buddy, the Professor, and NoNo -- will remind readers of people they know at work, and maybe even themselves. The problem of resistance to change in the face of major obstacles may seem depressingly familiar. But the penguins ultimately handle their very real challenges better than most humans. Our Iceberg is Melting can be enjoyed as a story while also providing invaluable guidance for a world that keeps moving fast and faster"--
