This is an excellent general text which is superbly written, very well structured, and reader friendly.
It is entirely suitable for essential reading in the Strategic HR Interventions module on the MSc HRM programme.

I have also recommended it colleagues in the University of Lincoln and expect it to be included in the distance learning recommended reading materials for their BSc Management of Change Module.

I would recommend this text to anyone teaching modules requiring students to become interested in change management and indeed to managers contemplating a change management programme.

This is an excellent book. It is well researched, theoretically sound and very relevant for informing the practice of managing and sustaining change in organizations. The theoretical issues are dealt with carefully and this book does add important points of analysis to the existing literature on organizational change. And it is also very much appealing for those who are looking for how to translate theory into practice. It should be a must in any course on organizational change.
