There’s a Science to Change… and Kotter Pioneered it.

Every business faces the challenge of accelerating change. Kotter works with organizations to solve business problems faster, drive performance, and rise to the challenges created by a faster-moving world.

Kotter pioneered the science of change through more than 40 years of Harvard research and real-world experience – all in service to Dr. John Kotter’s firm-founding mission: to make millions of people across the world better leaders for the benefit of billions. Kotter’s approach is based on rigorously tested principles and a framework that has been the basis for numerous published books and taught throughout private and public and management programs.
