Managing Organisational Culture and Change[edit]

I was unable to find an article that covers managing culture and change in an organisation and explains its important and how difficult it is to change culture. Any suggestions on an article that covers this topic?

If not, would it be useful to create an article that explains managing organisational culture and change and has quotes like the ones below?

The most frequently cited reason for failure was neglecting to address organisational culture (Cameron 1997) <ref>Cameron, Kim S. “Techniques for Making Organizations Effective: Some Popular Approaches.” In Daniel Druckman, Jerome E. Singer, and Harold Van Cott (eds.), Enhancing Organizational Performance. Washington, D.C.: National Academies Press, 1997</ref>

“70% of all major change efforts fail” - Dr. John Kotter, 1995 <ref>Kotter’s 8 step Organisational Change Model</ref>

“Culture influences leadership style more than any other factor” - Harvard Business Review, 2005 <ref></ref>

Help updating Sageworks[edit]

Hi! Are any WikiProject Business editors interested in some proposed updates for the article on Sageworks, a business that collects financial data on the private sector, and makes financial data and analysis software. In full disclosure, I'm here on behalf of Sageworks as part of my work with Beutler Ink. To start with, I've suggested a proposal for the History section, to provide some background on how the firm got started and a few major milestones. At Talk:Sageworks I've provided some background on the history of the page and why I'm offering new drafts. Let me know if you have any feedback or questions. Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 21:37, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

Help with New York Life request[edit]

Hi! I'm wondering if WikiProject Business editors might be interested in reviewing proposed updates at New York Life Insurance Company. The requests is to update article's infobox to: add products and assets under management; update income and employee figures. In full disclosure, I'm here on behalf of New York Life Insurance Company as part of my work with Beutler Ink. My hope is that an uninvolved editor (or editors) can review my proposed updates and make edits as appropriate. Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 20:20, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation links on pages tagged by this wikiproject[edit]

Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.

A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at

Please take a few minutes to help make these more useful to our readers.— Rod talk 13:56, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Blake Ricciardi[edit]

Would someone from this WikiProject take a look at Blake Ricciardi? I am unable to find any sources which show that this person in Wikipedia notable enough for a stand-alone article per WP:GNG or WP:BIO. Googling gets a number of hits, but these seem to be mainly primary sources or trivia mentions and not the significant coverage in independent reliable sources needed for Wikipedia notability. It has been suggested that the article be taken to AfD, but I'm asking here to see if someone might be aware of better sources which can be used. The article was recently heaviy edited by an IP (most likely someone connected to the subject) who turned it into a mish-mash over promotional content. It was also most likely created by someone connected to subject. The article has been restored to the last table version before the IP editing, but even that doesn't seem good enough to avoid AfD. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:54, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Book spam in Lean services[edit]

I have removed most of the spam for now, but it would be great if knowledgeable editors could keep an eye on this article. It has been the target of persistent book spam to promote the publications of "Lean Practitioner" Debashis Sarkar, as of 2006 a Deputy General Manager in an Indian bank. The author focusses on "XXX for dummies"-style guidebooks and "Quiz" books (book list on Amazon), I highly doubt he is a reliable expert on theoretical or academic aspects of this topic.
