Managing Change

Written by: Bernard Burnes

  • Managing Change is aimed at students of change management, strategy and organisational change as part of undergraduate, MBA and MA programmes.
  • Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect modern research, this edition explores the concept and practice of change within the broader context of the history, literature and theories of management. The main approaches on strategy development, management and leadership are linked to the processes of organisational change. A wide-ranging selection of case studies provides illustrations of change in a real-world context.
  • This fourth edition reviews the growing influence of the Internet and globalisation, with particular emphasis on topics such as sustainability, workforce diversity and business ethics. The author encourages critical reflection on areas such as post-modernism, realism and complexity theory, and explores in depth the influence of culture, power and politics. There is also practical guidance on the planning and implementation of change.
  • Lecturers and students can obtain further resources and materials from the textbooks companion website www.booksites.net/burnes
