Managing Change

Second Edition
Edited by:


January 1993 | 240 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Managing Change explores the processes, pathways and outcomes of change and strategies for managing it. The authors answer a number of provocative questions regarding change within organizations where the goal posts constantly shift, the cultural and subcultural mix grows ever more divergent, and people remain as inflexible as ever.

This book is a course Reader for The Open University Courses Managing Development and Change (B751) and Foundations of Senior Management (B800).

The Management of Change

A review of the First Edition:

`One of the best books available on the subject of Organizational Management' - International Journal of Strategic Management


This edited book is a fine compilation of readings on the management of change. The book provides answers to various questions on not only the planning, process and implementation of managing change but also gives insights to the role of change agents and many other necessary information. All essays in the book are well written and informative also for non-native speakers. I recommend the book in my course "Management in Social Organizations" in summer term, because it is one of the essential compilations of this subject. Because most of the literature available in German gives not such a good overview, I recommend this book as reading for the preparation of the final test and professional practice.
