Book Review ‘Learning to Change’

A guide for Organization Change Agents

Alan Clardy – Perssonel Psychology, 2003

[…] The authors identify and integrate a large and disparate literature, and, in the process, do a nice job both summarizing and advancing it. The text is supplemented by high quality tables and charts that provide easy-to-use visual summaries or aides for comparison. For American readers, the book introduces works from European scholars who may not be that well known.

[…] this is an important advance in the change management field, not for its originality but because of its ability to tie together a disjointed literature into a coherent whole and suggest a framework for a contingent approach to change management. I can recommend it to practitioners, scholars, and students alike, and will use it as the main text in the graduate change management course I teach.
