About the Author

Aaron C.T. Smith, Loughborough University London, UK and Fiona M. Sutherland, La Trobe University, Australia


`This exceptional book maps the vast change management landscape, demystifies its complexities, and engages readers with an accessible and balanced style. Through their original evaluation of organizational change philosophies and theories, the authors encourage us to move beyond prescriptive, paradigm-centred theories in order to understand the opportunities that each offers. Philosophies of Organizational Change offers an innovative re-evaluation of the assumptions governing decisions about organizational change. It will command interest and stimulate lively debate from practitioners, students and researchers in organization theory.' -- Ian Palmer, RMIT University, Australia `Using an approach similar to Gareth Morgan's Images of Organization, the authors have brought order to influential and highly disparate approaches to organizational change and have done so in a manner that is both well-researched and accessible to readers at many levels. It is a welcome resource for research, teaching and consulting - indeed for anyone who wishes to look beyond favoured approaches to organizational change. This lively and up-to-date text will be most useful for students, scholars and scholar-practitioners alike.' -- Julie Wofram Cox, Deakin University, Australia
