Change is all pervasive. Technologies of production, communication and travel are rapidly evolving. The impact of globalization on our experience of living and working is still increasing and organizations have to function in environments that are continually changing. A prime task of the manager is how to manage change effectively in such turbulent environments. Change Management is, therefore, a topic that has generated considerable writing. The aim of this set of volumes is to provide a carefully selected comprehensive collection of well-regarded, seminal articles on this subject, such as would be used by academics and advanced students in the field. This collection is divided into eight sections: Section 1: The Imperatives for Change Section 2: Early Writing on Change Section 3: The Human Relations School Section 4: The Systems Approach Section 5: Strategy Section 6: Leadership Section 7: Improvement and Innovation Section 8: Critical Approaches
