ChangeStart Press

ChangeStart Press is the publisher of Richard Bevan's books Changemaking (2011),  The Changemaking Checklists (2015) and (as a change from the business focus) The Galley Slave's Handbook (first published in 2010, with an updated edition in 2020). These titles are available from your local bookseller or Amazon.
In November 2020 we published The Hidden Triceratops, a story for children from four to eight years old (or so), soon to be followed by a sequel,
The Tangled Pteranodon.

As you might conclude, we celebrate a diversity of characters, topics and titles. On this site you can find a toolkit of resources related to change management and leadership. These include downloadable articles, and material excerpted from the books. We hope you find the content interesting and helpful. Please contact us at if you have questions, want to provide feedback and ideas, or to request a discount for academic or other group sales.

To be pubished soon:

The Tangled Pteranodon by Richard Bevan, illustrated by Bill Greaves.

Garth Stein (author of The Art of Racing in the Rain) wrote about the first book in the series, The Hidden Triceratops: "The drawings are marvelous, the story charming . . . author Richard Bevan cleverly brings to life a dinosaur-eat-dinosaur world in a safe and enjoyable way for children, who will delight at this book."
