From the cover: “Are you a perpetrator, a spectator or a victim of change? The chances are that In a given working week you are all three. Externally, we find ourselves In an unpredictable economy with turbulent markets, self-eclipsing technology and dramatic demographic trends, inside our organizations the goal posts constantly shift, the cultural and subcultural mix grows ever more divergent and people remain as Inflexible as ever! It Is timely to draw breath and reflect on the processes, pathways and precipitous outcomes of change. How do you implement a project that you have not originated with a team you have not chosen? Why do some managers thrive on ambiguity while others are frozen by its complexity? Do Internal and external change-agents have a role In the successful facilitation of change? Top-down change is more often endured than enduring. Why is this and what can be done to make change stick? Is change ever rational? What planning assumptions apply to different types of change? These and other change conundrums have been brought together to provide a set of readings for students on the Open Business School diploma level course on Managing change. DMS and MBA students and line managers generally will find here a rich store of practical applications and provocative research.”
