About the Book

This textbook is designed to cater to HR and business degree programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The book explores how and why change occurs, and how this process can be managed effectively. It offers a critical perspective, challenging the main assumptions in this area and ensuring that the complexity of the subject is understood. It includes:

  • Increased depth and breadth including chapters on Perspectives, Power and Politics, Ethics, Agents and Agency, HRM and Evaluation
  • Revised, more logical structure: the book has been divided into parts for easy navigation and the chapters have been restructured to reflect strategic, group and individual change
  • Critical perspective balanced with improved learning features to make the text more accessible including an appendix featuring 20 popular change management techniques
  • A final chapter focusing on evaluating the practice and theory of change management, concluding many of the debates introduced in the text.
