Authors Esther Cameron and Mike Green provide a short, reasonably accessible introduction to the nature of change and the methods and techniques for managing it. The introductory chapters summarize the most important points from the literature on change and change management, with a brief detour to discuss the development of psychology during the latter half of the twentieth century. Then, the authors dig right into the details of team building, team management and other nuts-and-bolts issues in organizational adaptation, giving readers enough information to hold their own in a discussion of the subject. getAbstract.com recommends this to anyone charged with managing organizational change, or even surviving it. The implicit promise of the title is that the authors will help readers make sense of change management. They keep that promise.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to understand and manage organizational change;
- How to approach and characterize change; and
- How change affects teams.
