Managing Change in Organizations, second edition, explores a broad range of perspectives on change management, encouraging critical reflection and making sense of a complex field of theories. Its unique approach, based around three key perspectives of change, will help you to understand:

·         How change is accomplished – the tool perspective

·         What change means for those involved – the process perspective

·         Why change is initiated (and whether it is necessary) – the critical perspective

Updated throughout to include new examples, case studies and exercises, this essential text offers you the chance to learn pragmatic tools for managing change, as well as gain an in-depth understanding of different theories and their values.
