The Change Handbook

Read about the Genuine Contact™ Program in The Change Handbook!

We are pleased to announce the inclusion of the Genuine Contact Program in the 2007 edition of ‘The Change Handbook: The Definitive Resource on Today's Best Methods for Engaging Whole Systems’. The new edition is the most comprehensive guide available to methods of organization and community change. It's designed for quick and easy access to information about high leverage change from today's foremost practitioners. This new edition is updated to describe 61 change methods and includes new chapters on selecting a method, mixing and matching methods, and sustaining results. The Change Handbook describes each change method’s essential concepts and processes and provides advice on when to use each.

In 1999, the first edition of The Change Handbook provided a snapshot of a nascent field that broke barriers by engaging "whole systems" of people from organizations and communities in creating their own future. In the last seven years, the field has exploded. In this completely revised and updated second edition, lead authors Peggy Holman, Tom Devane, and Steven Cady profile sixty-one change methods – up from eighteen in the first edition. Nineteen of these methods are explored in depth, with case studies, answers to frequently asked questions, and details on the roles and responsibilities of the people involved, conditions for success, and more. This tremendously expanded second edition – 400 pages longer, nearly twice the length of the first edition – will undoubtedly become the definitive resource in this rapidly expanding field.

You can find the Genuine Contact Program included in the Adaptable Methods section. This chapter highlights the Genuine Contact Program as a holistic approach that can be used on its own, or as a platform for using a variety of complementary change methods including Open Space Technology, Whole Person Process Facilitation, World Café, Appreciative Inquiry, and other methods.
