Change Management is a crucial process for gaining the competitive advantage that is the goal of many organisations.
This 5th edition of Organisational Change: Development and Transformation has been comprehensively revised to fully explain change management from the perspectives of organisational development and organisational transformation. Leaders and change agents are often faced with conflicting callenges of motivating and understanding increasingly diverse workforces, accounting to stakeholders and planning for the future in a chaotic environment.

Case studies, exercises and support material present the challenges of change management in a real-life manner ' examining issues from a variety of viewpoints
