"WHEN CHANGE HAPPENS" is a book written in a simple and practical style. The book is not only about when change happens but also why it happens, how it happens, who are involved, and what it means.
Staying away from the theoretical, academic and tepid handling of change management, the author Lalit Jagtiani uses a well-imagined and sensitively-crafted story on change. Students who are getting ready to step into the professional world or those who are interested in learning about how to handle change in work, life and their surroundings will find this book the perfect companion.

The book, unlike many other management books on change, is neither textual, heavy nor preachy. It is a factional fiction account of running change in an organisation. There is a narrative to it and includes human emotions, insecurities and threats that one will experience in organisations -- an attempt at making the students change-ready to embark on their professional life.
It is for these reasons it will be appreciated by the parents as well as education professionals – teachers and administrators, who will find this book extremely relevant.
By creating a fictional company supported by actual situations encountered by him, during several change and transformation interventions that he has been a part of, Lalit Jagitani has presented practical wisdom without compromising the confidentiality of the organisations. His storytelling narrative seen through the lens of a change agent enables sharing of lived content and nuances making this genre a powerful and entertaining way to transfer tacit knowledge.
