This textbook provides a comprehensive, realistic, innovative, and practical introduction to the field. It also presents both conceptual and experiential approaches as it focuses on the real world of organization development. Exciting examples and innovative applications show you how OD is applied in today's organizations, and what it takes to manage in a changing world. As for me, I'm very happy to deal with ecampus. The book looks as if it is new and the price was good. Thanks.
