This innovative and unique textbook describes change as a socially constructed process, reinforced by the interactions of employees at all levels. Including video and audio resources, it emphasises the fact that change is an on-going phenomenon: not an event that will soon be over once the consultants have left, but a permanent feature of an adaptable organisation.
This novel theoretical perspective makes it the first and only text to focus on the central role of conversations and storytelling in managing change. Strengthening the business focus of the text, this new 3rd edition includes provision of practical tools and techniques for managing change, increased coverage of sustaining change and a greater number of international examples and case studies. Managing Organizational Change is suitable for change management modules at all levels of undergraduate and postgraduate study.
