Robert Haworth’s Smell the Bacon, Charlie! is the newest guide for aspiring executives to understand the real-world mechanics of organizational change for businesses large and small. Written in a conversational and off-the-cuff style, Haworth brings his thirty years of experience as a management consultant, entrepreneur, CEO, and college professor into a content-rich, humorous, and easy-to-read book on a topic that all business executives (or aspiring executives) should read on how to successfully implement organizational change.

Haworth is very clear from the first chapter: “If you think that you’re going to be doing business in three to five years the same way you’re doing business today, well, that’s surely a going-out-of-business strategy.” In today’s fast-paced business world, organizations must change to stay competitive or even relevant.

This is the ideal book for business schools and colleges, and any executive considering taking the leap toward organizational change and renewal.

About the Author

Robert J. Haworth has retired from two highly successful careers and is now embarking on his third as a successful author.

Robert’s first career encompassed three decades as a management consultant working with large, complex organizations on major organizational change initiatives. These included implementing new technologies, business processes, and business model improvements. After working for three large global consulting firms, Robert started his own firm and successfully grew it to national prominence over a decade. During this three-decade consulting career, Robert has been inside more companies than he can remember. (This has nothing to do with memory loss, really.) Within these clients, he worked at every level and with all types of people, as he will say, “from the receiving dock to the boardroom.”

After selling his company to a British firm, he embarked on his second career as a college professor. He taught the topics that he is passionate about and what he did in the real world, including business management, strategic planning, and entrepreneurship. Robert will tell you that, though he loved his consulting “gig,” being in the classroom with his students from all over the world was the highlight of his career. His students must have thought the same because the business school senior class voted Robert their favorite professor year after year.

Now, Robert is beginning his third career as an author. As he will tell you: “When you’re running a consulting firm, your days are focused on client management, filling the sales pipeline, hiring and working with your team, and trying to keep one step ahead of competitors. There is no time for reflecting on what you’ve learned. But when you’re in the classroom working with incredible young adults and teaching them important business subjects and telling those amazing stories, well, then you have the time to reflect on what you’ve learned and, yes, think about the books you want to write.”
