About the Book :

The world we live in continues to change at an intense rate. The rate of change and discovery outpaces our individual ability to keep up with it. The organizations we work in or rely on to meet our needs and wants are also changing dramatically, in terms of their strategies, their structures,their systems, their boundaries and of course their expectations of their staff and their managers.

Making Sense of Change Management is the classic text in the field of change management. Written for students and professionals alike, it is aimed at anyone who wants to understand why change happens, how it happens and what needs to be done to make change a welcome - rather than a dreaded - concept. It offers considered insights into the many. frameworks, models and ways of approaching change and helps the reader to apply the right approach to each unique situation.

The third edition has been completely revised and updated with two new chapters, the first covering the role and the nature of the change agent and the second tackling the significant. challenge for today’s leaders of leading change in these uncertain times.
