“The hard part of change is enlisting the support of other people. Whether a top manager interested in improving your organization’s results, or a lone developer promoting a better way of working, this book will give you tools and ideas to help accomplish your goal. Best of all, they’re presented in small, digestible bits.”

—George Dinwiddie, independent coach and consultant, iDIA Computing, LLC


“Keep the patterns in this book and Fearless Change handy. Whenever you are frustrated by an intractable problem, choose a pattern to try. If you still don’t get the desired results, try another. Others will join in your efforts, and you’ll feel the satisfaction as small successes start to add up. These patterns transformed me from an ineffective “voice in the wilderness” to a valued collaborator.”

—Lisa Crispin, co-author with Janet Gregory, Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams (Addison-Wesley, 2009) and More Agile Testing (Addison-Wesley, 2015)


63 New and Updated Patterns for Driving and Sustaining Change


In their classic work Fearless Change, Mary Lynn Manns and Linda Rising identified 48 proven patterns for implementing change in organizations and teams of all sizes, and demonstrated exactly how to use them successfully. Now, More Fearless Change reflects on all they’ve learned about their original patterns in the past decade, and introduces 15 powerful, new techniques—all extensively validated by change leaders worldwide. Going far beyond their first book, Manns and Rising teach strategies that appeal to each individual’s logic (head), feelings (heart), and desire to contribute (hands). This inspiring guide will help you engage the whole person: the best way to motivate real change, and sustain it for the long haul.


Learn how to


  • Pick your battles: focus on the best things you can achieve with limited resources
  • Strategize to build flexible plans and go after low-hanging fruit
  • Get help from the right people in the right ways
  • Establish emotional connections that inspire motivation and imagination
  • Create an elevator pitch that keeps everyone focused on what truly matters
  • Build bridges, work with skeptics, soften resistance, and open minds
  • Uncover easier paths towards change, and build on what already works
  • Sustain momentum, provide time for reflection, and celebrate small successes


More Fearless Change is for everyone who believes in a new idea, whether or not they have formal authority to “make it happen.” It will help you succeed by helping others recognize the value in your change, instead of just forcing it upon them. It reflects a profound understanding of how real change happens: not instantaneously in response to top-down plans and demands, but iteratively, through small steps that teach from experience. Best of all, as thousands of change agents have already discovered, its patterns are easy to use—and they work!
