Summary

  • "Tremendous forces for change are radically reshaping the world of work. Disruptive innovations, radical thinking, new business models, and resource scarcity are impacting every business sector. Although the scale of expected change is not unprecedented, what is unique is the pervasive nature of the change and its accelerating pace. While structures, systems, processes, and strategies are relatively simple to understand and even fix, people are more complex. Change can have a different impact on each individual, which can cause different attitudes and reactions. Managing and Leading People through Organizational Change provides a critical analysis of change and transformation in organizations from both a theoretical and practical perspective. It addresses the individual, team, and organizational issues of leading and managing people before, during and after change, using case studies and interviews with people from organizations in different industries across the globe. Each chapter includes learning objectives, boxed summaries, diagrams/models, case examples with questions, exercises, and a list of references and further reading."--
  • "Tremendous forces for change are radically reshaping the world of work. Disruptive innovations, radical thinking, new business models and resource scarcity are impacting every sector. Although the scale of expected change is not unprecedented, what is unique is the pervasive nature of the change and its accelerating pace which people in organizations have to cope with. Structures, systems, processes and strategies are relatively simple to understand and even fix. People, however, are more complex. Change can have a different impact on each of them, all of which can cause different attitudes and reactions. Managing and Leading People Through Organizational Change is written for leaders with the key responsibility of managing people through transitions. Managing and Leading People through Organizational Change provides a critical analysis of change and transformation in organizations from a theoretical and practical perspective. It addresses the individual, team and organizational issues of leading and managing people before, during and after change, using case studies and interviews with people from organizations in different sectors across the globe. This book demonstrates how theory can be applied in practice through practical examples and recommendations, focusing on the importance of understanding the impact of the nature of change on individuals and engaging them collaboratively throughout the transformation journey"--
