“This is a much-needed book that allows readers to not only examine the practical and planned aspects of change, but also to explore organizational change from the processual and critical perspectives which are all too often neglected in books on managing organizational change.”
"Eschewing easy and simplistic answers, the authors also refuse to be fazed by the complexities of organizational change. They offer a sharp, multi-dimensional and probing commentary on how organizational change comes about, why it so often goes against the intentions of its instigators, why it breeds resistance and why resistance is not necessarily a bad thing.
They are not afraid to engage and offer compelling commentaries on what exactly counts as change, why one person sees change where another sees continuity, who stands to benefit and lose from change. Above all, they demonstrate the practical wisdom of approaching change as a fluid phenomenon that can at best be managed but not fully controlled. This is a must for all scholars of organizational change and practitioners wise enough to look beyond the recipe book."
