having actually studied the material this time, what Kotter means is to explain what happens if you don't make the change. What happens in reality is management pretending the world will explode if you don't drop what you are doing immediately and accuse you of not being committed if you ask any questions. Kotter gone all wrong!

a process is a set of coordinated activities combining and implementing resources and capabilities in order to produce an outcome, which, directly or indirectly, creates value for an external customer or stakeholder.

This is from 1977, but it's just as informative today as it was then.

This is a really fun, elegant little experiment. I am still trying to come to terms with the result!
