Product Description

From the Back Cover

“One of the very best books on change management! Exploring Strategic Change enables students and managers to develop their skills and judgement in crafting successful designs for strategic change.

Its integrating model – the Change Kaleidoscope – enables rich analysis of context, and supports both students and lecturers in undertaking assignments and assessments.”

Dr Steve Kempster, Lancaster University Management School

 

Exploring Strategic Changeengages with the dynamic and complex process of change management from the analysis of context to the formulation and implementation of effective strategies and solutions.

Using the unique and innovative framework of the Change Kaleidoscope, the reader will develop valuable insights into the understanding and practice of managing change. Frequent examples encourage both critical reflection and application of theory, and the focus on implementation also enables students to hone their judgement and practical skills.

This third edition of Exploring Strategic Change provides

  • A wide range of short illustrations from both the private and public sectors

  • More coverage of change agency skills and competencies

  • Greater focus on the politics of change

  • Two new, long case studies to explore the complexity of managing change

Exploring Strategic Changeis written for undergraduate and postgraduate students, practising managers and change agents on strategy and HR-related modules on the management of change. The book also develops themes from the market-leading textbook Exploring Corporate Strategy, to which it can be used as a complementary text.

I came across extract of this book part of my MBA studies, so I went through a chapter or two and then bought the third edition of this book. Unlike most of the books that usually provide prescription for change and tell you what to do, this book teach you how to think. It is the source of very valuable frameworks and helps you to lead and analyse almost any change context and develop your own method when you need to lead or manage the change.

An excellent book. Easy to read and covering the subject well. It complements Kevan & Scholes' Exploring Corporate strategy extremely well. A must for anyone interested in Managing Change. Both 'hard' and 'soft' aspects are well covered.

I bought this book because it is referenced frequently on my MBA. It's a well-written and readily accessible book about change. It brings together a number of models into a form that is practical and has been very very useful for structuring my own ideas about change. The Kaleidoscope model is particularly useful in bringing together the strategic context, the change context and the levers that one might use. It also encourages high levels of reflection by the change agents to ensure that the change program is fitted to the context.

This is one of the clearest books on change management I have ever read (and as an Organisation Development Specialist I have read hundreds).

The text is clear, logical and steps you through the journey of change in organisations. It brings together many of the key theories into one flow and shows you how to use them practically to get a really good grip on what you want to change and how you want to do it. There are plenty of case studies that illustrate the points.

The authors are seasoned change experts and the fact they have managed to condense that into a book of around 300 pages is commendable.
