Dr. John Kotter set out in 1972 to answer the question: What makes transformational change efforts succeed or fail? Over the decades, he studied hundreds of organisations. His empirical research revealed eight common elements that are universally present across all successful transformations. The Kotter 8-Step Process for Leading Change was born, followed by Kotter International to translate the research to impact.
Kotter works with organisations to help them overcome the barriers to leading complex change. With decades of real-world research honed in the field alongside our partners, we expertly guide and convert the energy of your greatest asset—your people— into action, momentum and results.
Kotter has offices in Cambridge, MA and Seattle, WA in the United States and employees based across Europe and India.
“Leadership is about setting a direction. It’s about creating a vision, empowering and inspiring people to want to achieve the vision, and enabling them to do so with energy and speed through an effective strategy. In its most basic sense, leadership is about mobilising a group of people to jump into a better future.” – John Kotter
