Transformation at the Speed of People
by Richard W. Bridges

In these chapters, Rick Bridges invites us on his successful and internationally acclaimed journey of leading enterprise-wide change. He shares his insights, stories, and proven methods for creating and sustaining transformational change that will leave you with a new and fresh perspective on your ability to lead and drive your organization. Using his humble wit, real life experiences, and passion for driving to actionable solutions, Rick shares how transforming culture, gaining competitive advantage, and creating tangible benefit through change can be done quickly, cheaply, and almost painlessly if you take into account three simple, yet critical principles - First, you need to change not knowing into knowing; secondly, you must manage your knowledge like any other valued asset; and last but not least, it is essential to spend the time to properly prepare your organization for the change before you start. Rick sets the stage for how a leader like you can drive successful transformation. Rick did not have a “C” acronym in his title, and like many leaders, he was someone that wanted to make things better, but sometimes lacked the fancy title, authority, or significant resources to make it happen. The success he achieved in transforming enterprises is something that you can achieve if you understand his passion and leverage the tools he shares in this book.

Rick Bridges was a successful leader supporting organizations in telecommunications, energy and healthcare achieve their transformational goals for over 30 years. He was educated through the school of hard knocks and through his years of experience, he realized that there were easier, more effective ways that organizations could undertake major technology or business transformational change. Using his unyielding tenacity and passion, Rick was able to fully deploy and prove out his strategies resulting in major financial wins for the companies he supported. Creating tangible success was important to Rick, but his greatest pride and satisfaction came from the leaders he nurtured and developed through his work. Many have gone on to become executives in leading enterprises and each, without exception, lend credence to their time with Rick as a major contributor to their success. Rick's goal was to share his lessons learned and guiding principles so that others with similar passion could accelerate and streamline making a difference within their own companies. Unfortunately for us all, Rick passed away before seeing his work in print. His wife, Cheryl, and daughter, Kelsey, thank his friends and colleagues for helping to make his dream to publish a reality. Those who knew him well believe that his work and insight can support any and all leaders embarking on major transformation initiatives for their companies.
