This extremely successful textbook on Organizational Change provides a discussion of change in relation to the complexities of organizational life. Taking both a theoretical and practical approach to the issues of organizational change, the text seeks to meet both the academic and applied aims of most business and management courses. The book is ideal for both MBA students and those studying for the more specialist degrees in Organizational Development and Change. Its structure and content also make it accessible to final level Business Studies undergraduate students.
The book is structured in three parts. The first part considers the causes and nature of change. Part two opens up the organization to expand on issues of structuring for change, the cultural and political contexts for change and how to lead change. Part three moves firmly into addressing the more practical considerations of designing, planning and implementing change.
This third edition of Organizational Change:
· Presents a comprehensive coverage of the significant ideas and issues associated with change at all levels of organizational activity from the strategic to the operational and at the individual, group, organizational and societal levels.
· Takes a conceptual and analytical approach to the way that theory and research in relation to organizations and change is explored and critiqued.
· Includes practical elements in its provision of descriptions and worked examples of different approaches to doing change.
· Provides a running case study, with discussion questions, of a major telecommunication organization.
· Features a balanced mixture of shorter illustrative case studies drawn from the pubic, private and voluntary sectors, small and large.
· Asks readers to undertake challenging activities to encourage the application of ideas and learning from the text to personal experience.
· Includes end of chapter discussion questions and assignments, some of which are set in examination-type terms that can be used as preparation for tests that might be associated with a particular course.
