    This successful text provides a discussion of change in relation to the complexities of organizational life with an emphasis on applying the theory into practice.



    The book is structured in three parts. The first part considers the causes and nature of change. Part two ‘opens up' the organization to expand on issues of structuring for change, the cultural and political contexts for change and how to lead change. Part three moves firmly into addressing the more practical considerations of designing, planning and implementing change.
