Product Description

From the Back Cover

This very successful textbook explores change and how it relates to the complexities of organizational life – and puts an emphasis on applying the theory into practice. Now thoroughly updated in its 4th edition, Organizational Change reflects a rapidly changing world and considers ‘how change has changed’.

The book is structured in three parts. The first part considers the causes and nature of change. Part two ‘opens up’ the organization to expand on issues of structuring for change, the cultural and political contexts for change and how to lead change. Part three moves firmly into addressing the more practical considerations of designing, planning and implementing change.

Ideal for both MBA students and those studying specialist courses in Organizational Development and Change, the clear structure and content of this text also make it accessible to final level undergraduate students.

Key features

  • Offers comprehensive coverage of the significant ideas and issues associated with change at all levels of organizational activity, from the strategic to the operational, and at the individual, group, organizational and societal levels.
  • Takes a conceptual and analytical approach to the way that theory and research relate to organizations, and how change is explored.
  • Includes practical elements and worked examples of different approaches to ‘doing’ change.
  • Asks readers to undertake challenging activities to encourage the application of ideas and learning from the text to personal experience.
  • Provides end of chapter additional reading and suggested websites for readers wishing to pursue ideas and issues further.

New to this edition

  • Significantly updated chapter on Cultures for Change, incorporating brand-new content on areas including cultural types and national culture.
  • New material on complexity theory, strategic change, actor-networks, institutional theory and leadership.
  • An exploration of how ‘change has changed’ in recent years, plus content on organizations of the future and challenges for future research.

Format: Paperback
Along with Bernard Burnes from the same publisher, this is the best of the recent texts you will find on change management, for the sophisticated reader who needs to start somewhere. Its popularity is evidenced by its reaching a 3rd edition in a crowded market for change management books. And, as is appropriate, it covers much of what other people have said about change management. Intervening to change organizations affects people's lives in a very significant way. Don't consider it unless you are prepared to do some serious groundwork first. This book follows appropriate conventions for referencing and citations, which are in turn there for a reason. What it lacks, imho, is any consideration of critical approaches to change - eg Chris Grey's great piece on the fetish of change.
