Managing Innovation and Change

Managing Innovation and Change

Third Edition
Edited by:

August 2006 | 304 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Building on the success of the Second Edition with 19 new chapters, Managing Innovation and Change showcases the best work of thinkers writing in this area and provides a coherent picture of key ideas and concepts to have emerged from this exciting field.

Frequently radical and intentionally provocative in terms of topic and treatment, the book:

- covers the increasing diversity of pressures to which modern enterprises are subjected;

- reviews some of the more persistent acronyms to which the art of management is increasingly prone;

- examines the nature of innovation;

- looks at the broader issues surrounding change, and

- turns to those attributes of leadership which are consistent with the successful management of innovation and change.

'I must say that I give this book, "two thumbs up". The real genius, however, is the editorial choices that David Mayle has made. This is not meant to denigrate the work of the authors but to emphasize the essential role played by the editor of a compilation. These are the right articles, from the right sources, at the right time, and in the right sequence. This compilation is top-rate, and my expectation is that this will become another strong link in the chain of change management literature'
