This is a fabulous textbook - exhaustive in its coverage of conceptual models of organization change, intellectually stimulating in its analyses, and suggestive of new areas of research to augment the discipline. OD has an intellectual history in how it has developed, and this book gives you a feel for that, this is the reference book you MUST have and read again and again. There is nothing equal to it. My highest recommendation.
Organization Change; Theory and Practice: stars based on 1 user reviews.
The Third Edition of this bestselling text continues to make clear how effective organization change is grounded in sound knowledge about human behaviour in the workplace. Author W. Warner Burke reviews various models and cases to demonstrate how to diagnose change issues in organizations. Greater emphasis is placed on planned, revolutionary change over the gradual, evolutionary change typically experienced by organizations. The book combines and integrates theory and research with application for insight into all aspects of organization change. Key Features : Utilizes unique theory bases for understanding organizations and change: Additional theory bases such as Capra's ideas about the life sciences, chaos theory, and Gladwell's The Tipping Point are discussed '¢ Examines both evolutionary and revolutionary organization change : Organization change is discussed at different organizational levels and with clarification of resistances to change '¢ Discusses the nature of change : The book begins by addressing how organization change is initiated by changing behavior and not by changing mental sets or attributes which gradually change over time as key behaviors are enacted, measured, and rewarded '¢ Illustrates the usefulness of models: Additional models such as one develops by Burke and Litwin have been included to help assess what needs to be changed and what priorities are over time '¢ Offers extensive coverage of leadership via two chapters devoted to the topic ' Leading Organizational Change, and Transformational Leadership.
