Dawson and Andriopoulos continue to provide a fresh approach to organizational change by linking it to the key drivers of creativity and innovation, but now, in response to market feedback, with even more emphasis on change management.
The book explores change as a human and social process, looking at the vital role leadership, entrepreneurship and creativity play rather than viewing it as a series of systems and mechanisms. In doing so, it provides all the theoretical and practical understanding you will need as both a student of change and a future manager.
By taking a process-oriented and holistic approach, the addition of new case studies and a raft of new material to illustrate the differences and similarities in trends and developments within business and management across the globe, the Third Edition offers practical guidelines to approaching change, creativity and innovation.
