Explore and resolve complex organisational change issues by applying theories into practice

Organizational Change, 6th Edition by Senior, Swailes and Carnall reflects a rapidly evolving world and explores ‘how change has changed’. The book is structured into three parts. The first part considers the causes and nature of change. Part two opens up the organisation to expand on issues of structuring for change, the cultural and political contexts for change and how to lead change. Part three moves firmly into addressing the more practical considerations of designing, planning and implementing change.
