Plan, implement, and evaluate organizational change
With the growing influence of the external environment on internal operations, organizations need to be able to adapt and change. Managers at all levels must diagnose organizational issues, develop a compelling vision, engage others in this collective journey, and bring change to fruition. This book helps leaders, managers, and students do just that.
- Takes a pragmatic, action-oriented approach: Frameworks are given to help readers understand, plan, implement, and evaluate change.
- Emphasizes the measurement of change: Students will learn that measurement is crucial not only to determine the progress of change plans but also that measurement itself is a change tool.
- Demonstrates principles and applications: Engaging, real-world examples, ‘Toolkit’ exercises, and cases illustrate theory and concepts.
