Previous editions of this book have been widely praised and rightly so. In this new version significant updates and additions have been made to ensure critical engagement with key conceptual advances, contemporary debates and practical insight. As such Managing Change, Creativity and Innovation deserves to remain the source of choice for the thoughtful and reflective student of innovation or change practitioner.(Ian McLoughlin Professor of Management, Monash University, Australia and Visiting Professor, Warwick University, UK 2017-01-27)
Dawson & Andriopoulos' book makes a significant contribution to the scholarly literature on organizational change. This well-written and comprehensive book highlights the critical importance of analyzing interactions between individual, group, temporal, and environmental factors throughout the process of organizational change.

This book does a masterful job of promoting critical thinking to managing change and creativity.(David M. Boje 2017-02-01)
With each successive edition, this book just gets better and better. It is essential reading for anyone who has an interest in managing and changing organizations.
(Professor Bernard Burnes 2017-01-05)
For students and practitioners, this is a benchmark text on the process of organizational change. Why do many planned changes fail to meet their goals? Change management is often presented as a reaction to business problems, but change can also be proactive, driven by entrepreneurship, leadership, creativity and innovation. Combining these perspectives in a processual framework, this text offers fresh explanations, beyond oversimplified guidelines and complex theories, with new case studies and updated material. The authors present a cross-disciplinary set of models and techniques in a style sensitive to corporate, managerial and individual concerns.
(David A. Buchanan 2017-01-05)
‘By adopting an explicitly processual and temporal stance, Dawson and Andriopoulos go beyond simple prescriptions to conceive change, innovation and creativity as continuously inter-weaving and co-emergent dynamics of social engagement. This novel perspective not only has potential to liberate students and researchers from the constraints of overly abstracted thinking, but it also resonates strongly with the lived experiences of practising managers.’
(Dr Barbara Simpson 2017-01-13) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
