    Reviews of this product:

    Pinky Luwaca commented. 5 out of 5 stars
    For the first time today we used  our "Winning the Game of Change."  What a useful tool.The HR/OD team used this to plan an project. We first clarified the purpose of the discussion and we were all clear about what needed to be achieved. We also ensured that we had all the relevant people who would add value to the process there. As a group we took ownership of the process in a sense that we all had to apply our minds. We discussed who we think should be in the project team, tactics to use etc. There was a lot of debate in some areas and less in others.With the assistance of the cards we managed to fill in all the blocks on the chart. What was exciting was to see the creativity.The tool also allows those who are not vocal to be able to voice their opinions and ideas which I found very fascinating.From my side it is the first time that I felt confident in drafting a change strategy.
