Product description


‘. . . the book is particularly useful for scholars, students and educators. . . Narratives of Organisational Change and Learning makes a worthwhile contribution to the literature in this field.’ -- Simon Peel, Journal of Educational Administration and History

‘It is a rare pleasure to read a monograph that uses organisational stories and storytelling as the main vehicles for analysing how people handle organisational and personal change in moments of rapid social and technological transformation. Instead of getting bogged down in questions of ontology and epistemology, Stefanie Reissner has produced a compelling narrative that uses the voices of her respondents in a sensitive, serious and sophisticated manner to reveal not only how people cope with changes in their working lives but also some of the costs of these changes.’ -- Yiannis Gabriel, University of London, UK


"Narratives of Organisational Change and Learning" investigates change and learning through the comparative and contextual analysis of organisational stories. It focuses on how organisational actors make sense of and learn from profound change as exemplified by three manufacturing firms from Britain, South Africa and Russia. The interaction between organisational change and wider social, economic and political changes in the organisations' environments and their impact on the organisational actors' identity is examined. The book also explores the complex responses to organisational change epitomised by patterns of stories prevalent in each of the three organisations, as well as the important insights into often unacknowledged narrative processes of learning which result from profound change.
