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.

Early in 2020 we published Roger D'Aprix's latest book Bosses: True Stories of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
And in November 2020 we published The Hidden Triceratops, a story for children from four to eight years old (or so).

As you might conclude, we celebrate a diversity of topics and titles.
This site includes a toolkit of resources related to change management and leadership. These include downloadable tools, 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.

Just published: The Hidden Triceratops by Richard Bevan, illustrated by Io Shepard.

Garth Stein (author of The Art of Racing in the Rain) writes: "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."
