4.0 out of 5 stars the best of standard texts.
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars Finally a cure for insomnia!!!!
This book is such a difficult book to read, that it is a wonder that the author would have even bothered writing this book, except as a cruel jest. I like to call this literary terrorism. Normally, when an author writes a book, they make a point and include references to support their statement, not so with this author. This author has simply put together a summary of...

This review is from: Organizational Change (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.

Has great insight into HR and the intricacies involved in the workplace. It was very helpful in writing my dissertation and will be a book that can be applied to many business theories.

This review is from: Organizational Change (Paperback)
This book is such a difficult book to read, that it is a wonder that the author would have even bothered writing this book, except as a cruel jest. I like to call this literary terrorism. Normally, when an author writes a book, they make a point and include references to support their statement, not so with this author. This author has simply put together a summary of what other authors have written without making any conclusions whatsoever. Half of the book is just quotes from other books. For example, in chapter 3, the author wants to describe the meaning of culture in an organization. She writes 7, yes 7 different definitions!!! What is anyone supposed to conclude from that??
On the plus side (hense the one star), the activities, and the illustrations are worth going through. You will not learn anything from what the author has to say, but you may begin an analysis of your own organization from the activities and illustrations. Your best bet is since this book is just a collection of quotations from other works, I believe it will be more beneficial to just pick up the books and articles that she is quoting to learn more about organizational change. Leave this book for those endless nights when you cannot sleep.
