About the Authors
  • Managing Change: Enquiry and Action, Australasian edition offers a fresh perspective of change theory with contemporary examples providing students with the tools they need to navigate the complexities of change within organisations. The book features notions of innovation, disruption and agile learning that are necessary in an intensified business world. Using an enquiry-action framework, the text is separated into three parts: diagnosing, explaining and enacting to combine theory with the practical tools needed to understand and manage change. Cases reinforce student understanding and focus on actions and outcomes while a selection of fifteen extended cases bring different concepts together. Written by leading professionals, Managing Change: Enquiry and Action, Australasian Edition is an essential resource for students looking to develop a strong skills base that can be employed in practice.

    • Managing Change is not wedded to a single model to explain different approaches to change and therefore provides a balanced treatment of alternatives, giving students a deeper understanding of the principles of change
    • Has discrete chapters on innovation, understanding the change context and choosing/adopting an approach to change
    • Twenty-one mini-cases and fifteen extended cases along with a website which includes guided responses to end of chapter and extended cases questions from the book and extra material
