‘By adopting an explicitly processual and temporal stance, Dawson and Andriopoulos go beyond simple prescriptions to conceive change, innovation and creativity as continuously inter-weaving and co-emergent dynamics of social engagement. This novel perspective not only has potential to liberate students and researchers from the constraints of overly abstracted thinking, but it also resonates strongly with the lived experiences of practising managers.’
With each successive edition, this book just gets better and better. It is essential reading for anyone who has an interest in managing and changing organizations.
For students and practitioners, this is a benchmark text on the process of organizational change. Why do many planned changes fail to meet their goals? Change management is often presented as a reaction to business problems, but change can also be proactive, driven by entrepreneurship, leadership, creativity and innovation. Combining these perspectives in a processual framework, this text offers fresh explanations, beyond oversimplified guidelines and complex theories, with new case studies and updated material.
Dawson & Andriopoulos' book makes a significant contribution to the scholarly literature on organizational change. This well-written and comprehensive book highlights the critical importance of analyzing interactions between individual, group, temporal, and environmental factors throughout the process of organizational change. Presented in an interesting and highly readable style, this book will be of considerable value to students, scholars and business practitioners alike. Highly recommended.
This book does a masterful job of promoting critical thinking to managing change and creativity.
Previous editions of this book have been widely praised and rightly so. In this new version significant updates and additions have been made to ensure critical engagement with key conceptual advances, contemporary debates and practical insight. As such Managing Change, Creativity and Innovation deserves to remain the source of choice for the thoughtful and reflective student of innovation or change practitioner.
Love the comprehensive overview of the textbook and how it incorporates the continuum of change and innovation, with creativity as a functional framework within.
Excited about the assets that come along with the text as well.
We have been using the 1st edition in the past few years. After reviewing the 2nd and 3rd, I particularly welcome the return of chapter (3) that provides a brief history of management thought inthe devleopment of concepts, theories and business practice. I often find a brief bridging chapter help students to appreciate change, creativity and innovation have always been playing an important part in our every day life both at organisational and individual levels. It's not simply a buzz word for modern political world, rather it's in human genes.
I found this book interesting and set out in an easy to understand way which the students appeared to enjoy. It includes many of the leadership models which form part of the leadership course which makes this book a useful reference for students. The case studies were useful. I have placed this onto our reading list.
Text has a diverse breadth and depth of issues relative to change and innovation. Extremely well explained, with a level of debate suitable for advanced study. Text well presented with range of formats and case examples.
Well written, thoroughly referenced and full of detailed, real world examples.
