This textbook brings seminal and emerging academic thinking together, in a cohesive whole, with contemporary practice. It brings the reader up to speed with pivotal issues and practices in the field of change and organisational development that will shape this arena for the next twenty years. It dispels confusion and brings clarity for those teaching and learning about change in organisations.

This is the textbook that needed to be written. It addresses what has been going on in the field, while being a call to action for practitioners of the future. It puts organisations and management squarely on the map while acknowledging the position and contribution of newer specialisations such as HR, marketing and strategic management.
