Without Adizes, none of this would have been possible. Personally, I learned from Adizes more than what I learned at the Harvard Business School, and I owe whatever success I've had in business to Adizes.

Ichak has simplified management theory. His message is clear and concise...Like reading Peter Drucker, the more time you invest in Mas­tering Change the higher your return on investment.

Monroe Price

Former Dean

School of Law, Yeshiva University

Ichak Adizes is one of the few management consultants who has converted a whole array of theory-based concepts into unusually practical guidelines for managers. And even more impressive, he has integrated these guidelines into a comprehensive system of management.

I have been a fan of yours ever since I read Corporate Lifecycles, after hearing a TEC (now Vistage) presentation 20 years ago by Peter Shutz, who credited you for his success at Porsche in the ‘80s.
I wish more people were aware of your work, despite your fame and achievements. I’d be surprised if you remember but we met once at a Marcus Evans CFO Summit event in NE Florida, maybe 15 years ago now.

From our conversation there, I expect it was your first and last such marketing effort, as it was for us. My company that presented there was IDEA, which your work helped us pull into Prime and sell last summer to a multi-billion dollar Sri Lankan company. I still have three companies left, so plenty left to do.

The experience has been extremely good. People attending the different Phases...are all convinced that the methodology is a good one, and that the amount of time spent in the sessions is worthwhile ...

The people seem to be more confident in the future of the company. Everything seems to be happening together. As we are going through these exercises, we are building up internal confidence and internal trust.

With Ichak, we examined our management structure to find ways to give more focus and definition, and come up with an organization chart...It was absolutely successful! We went in somewhat skeptical and came out exhilarated. We gained a great deal of focus and gained individual as well as team responsibility.
