I’ve finally managed to read the book! Walking the Talk is a “how to” book, a methodology on managing large cultural change programs within an organisation. Culture change is usually seen as something fuzzy, something that can not be changed or embraced in the same way other enablers of a successful organisation can. But the same successful organisations have all been able to create a strong culture within their business. This book shows how to address culture and make it a key success factor of your business. It goes hand in hand with the “Walking the Talk” service offering (which my company offers) but can be used independently. It is full of practical advice, real-life examples, and tools to manage small and large culture change. I highly recommend it to HR and change management practitioners all over the world. The culture change reference manual.
