Business Change Management Resources

Change Management is a growing professional discipline. There are lots of new ideas about how to do it well, and this is a selection of resources that I think are useful, interesting and give insight in how to make change a reality.

Great videos:

The bigger picture of neuroscience if you want the background

Short papers:
