Organizational Change: Sociological Perspectives
Psychology Press, 1998 - 214 pages
In recent years, there has been an explosion of books on the nature of organisational change and the management skills needed to effectively carry it out. Many are written by change gurus and management consultants offering quick fixes and metaphor laden business toolkits, however, much of their advice is banal and under-theorized. This book redresses this balance by providing an original analysis of change management in organizations in the light of wider sociological perspectives. It critically examines the, often implicit, theoretical frameworks underpinning many contemporary accounts of organizational change, and covers subjects including:
* the importance of explicit analysis of theory and context
Critical monographs and research studies
Theories for the analysis of change
The diversity of theoretical frameworks
Radical and Marxist frames of reference
Paradigms offor change
New paradigms for change?
