Description:

The Theory and Practice of Change Management examines the key theoretical perspectives on organisational change. It clearly demonstrates how the various themes can be applied within organisations to deal with the issues arising from internally planned and externally imposed change. Key points are illustrated with case studies and a wealth of mini-exercises help readers relate theory to their own experience of change and explore how theories can be applied practically to provide a range of approaches to managing the problems associated with change.
