Format: Paperback
This is one of the books that I've dog-eared, underlined, and referenced over and over, so much so that I'm on my second copy. It goes beyond the typical change management information, and gives valuable tools for assessing the readiness for change, identifying roles people assume in a change situation; charting responsibilities in a change process, among others. In my opinion, this isn't a book for scholars, it is a book for managers and those who help them plan and manage complex organization transitions.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am an experienced transformational change professional and have used this book to provide both an overview model / framework and for providing pragmatic strategies and actions to undertake major change and development initiatives. I have used the framework and ideas in several large initiatives and have found they work extremely well. Of course if you are working at this level you need deep knowledge of the approaches, disciplines and practice surrounding transformation and development however to have a framework that is straightforward for senior managers and staff and other stakeholders to grasp is a key benefit the book provides. I saw a review from a detractor (posted in 1999 so old hat now) and was surprised that he or she did not appreciate the framework or ideas. Highly recommended for the reasons provided above.

Format: Paperback
Beckhard and Harris' book on organizational transition is easily one of the worst I have ever read on the subject. It is not necessarily the kind of information that is conveyed here, nor is it the style with which it is done. Rather, if you have even the slightest concept of the meaning of OD and related topics then your knowledge is perhaps well beyond the scope of this book. Though the book does represent a nice introduction to the management of change, it is hardly worth its price.It barely surpasses the quality of an average pop-psychology book but certainly is of little value to scholars.
