Product description

From the Back Cover

Managing Change examines the concept and practice of change within the broader context of the history, literature and theories of management. The main approaches on strategy development, management and leadership are linked to the processes of organisational change. A wide-ranging selection of case studies provides illustrations of change in a real-world context.

This fourth edition reviews the growing influence of the Internet and globalisation, with particular emphasis on topics such as sustainability, workforce diversity and business ethics. The author encourages critical reflection on areas such as post-modernism, realism and complexity theory, and explores in depth the influence of culture, power and politics. There is also practical guidance on the planning and implementation of change.

Managing Change is suitable for students on modules covering management, strategy and organisational change as part of undergraduate, MBA and MA programmes.

 

 

 

Key Features:

  • Change within the broad context ofmanagement theory and strategy
  • 10 real-life cases from a range of sectors and countries
  • Practical guidance on the planning and implementation of change
  • New chapters covering culture, power & politics, and frameworks for change
  • Glossary of key terms
  • Website providing teaching notes and presentation slides

On the third edition

"This text is unique in demonstrating clearly the linkages between corporate strategy, organisational behaviour and the management of change – subjects that are often treated separately. Complex issues are presented with an admirable clarity of style, supported by interesting and varied case illustrations. An ideal undergraduate text that will also be valuable for post-experience managers on masters programmes."

David Buchanan, Professor of Orgnanisational Behaviour, School of Business, De Montfort University

 

On the fourth edition

"This is the essential and definitive text on change management. It integrates the vast sweep of organisational theory and practice in a highly readable way. Every student and practitioner of change must have this."

Michael Griffin, Director of Human Resources, King's College Hospital NHS trust

I used this book (and the previous edition) throughout both my MBA and PhD studies. The book is clearly written and very helpful in sorting through the maze of management literature. I would highly recommend this book for both undergraduate and graduate students of management.

I use this book as a ready reference almost every week. Its content is broad and comprehensive and it's easy to access.
I'd recommend it to those new to the field as well as experienced practitioners.

Even through it got delivered from UK to Australia, it took about a week. So it's quick. The quality of book is good, too. There is just little problem and it has nothing to do with the seller, it's the way the writer say thing is really hard to understand...As a textbook, this is really hard to read.

Great book, I am enjoying it. I am using it for my study in Managing Change at University level. I would recommend this to those studying at College level or wanting to broaden their knowledge on managing change.

I needed this book for my course at Uni. Offers some interesting insights, although it isn't exactly light reading (although I imagine if you are looking at this book that isn't what you're after).

Painful.. this is the first word that comes to mind!! though to be fair it has less to do with this particular book and more to do with general subject matter.. this was a compulsory textbook in a postgraduate programme i undertook.. I had no previous knowledge on this issue of organisational dynamics and i must admit this book made the subject slightly clearer.. certainly not one for your reading pleasure but as a textbook worth its salt!!
