Change Management

Change Management

Four Volume Set
Edited by:

July 2009 | 1 744 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Change is all pervasive. Technologies of production, communication and travel are rapidly evolving. The impact of globalization on our experience of living and working is still increasing and organizations have to function in environments that are continually changing.

A prime task of the manager is how to manage change effectively in such turbulent environments. Change Management is, therefore, a topic that has generated considerable writing. The aim of this set of volumes is to provide a carefully selected comprehensive collection of well-regarded, seminal articles on this subject, such as would be used by academics and advanced students in the field.

This collection is divided into eight sections:

Section 1: The Imperatives for Change

Section 2: Early Writing on Change

Section 3: The Human Relations School

Section 4: The Systems Approach

Section 5: Strategy

Section 6: Leadership

Section 7: Improvement and Innovation

Section 8: Critical Approaches
