Managing Radical Organizational Change

Managing Radical Organizational Change

August 1998 | 392 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The breakup of the former Soviet Union has given organizational science scholars the opportunity to study radical changes companies must make in order to adapt to different economic and social goals. The authors of this book examined in depth how companies in central Europe (Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic) made the unprecedented move from a centrally planned system to a market economy. The results of their analysis, along with new theory they have developed about managing radical organizational change, are presented here.
