Description

A fresh approach to managing organizational change by looking at it as complex, dynamic and messy as opposed to a series of neat, linear stages and processes leading to success. Key to the approach is the idea that change, creativity and innovation all overlap and interconnect rather than being three separate areas of study and that managing the three together is central to organizations having the competitive edge in developing new technologies and techniques, products and services.The book continues to offer practical guidelines as well as a theoretical understanding of change, creativity and innovation. It delivers an equal balance of critical perspectives and sound ideas for organizational change and development and presents the idea that change can be proactive, driven by creativity and innovation. The new edition includes additional change management content including learning, personal change, managing the self, employability, developments in conventional Organizational Development and new emergent forms including appreciative inquiry. Along with a series of rich international case studies, including TNT Australia, Amazon, Leeds Rhinos, Jerusalem Paints, Alpha Pro Pump and KPMG. It is supported by a range of learning and revision aids including reflective exercises, review and discussion questions and hands-on research tasks. All of which help students to reflect on the material covered and provide a source for more open group discussion and debate. A companion website accompanies the book, with additional material including PowerPoint slides for lecturers and video links and access to SAGE journal articles for Students.Suitable for upper-level undergraduates and postgraduate students.

Auteur

Patrick Dawson is Professor of Organizational Change at the University of Northumbria and Emeritus Professor at the University of Aberdeen. He holds a PhD in Industrial Sociology from the University of Southampton and during his early career, worked at the University of Surrey and the University of Edinburgh. He moved to Australia in the 1980s and took up a lectureship at the University of Adelaide. In 1997, he took up the Salvesen Chair in Management at the University of Aberdeen, where he undertook senior administrative roles including Director of Graduate Studies and Head of the Business School. After a sabbatical in 2005, Patrick reduced his time at Aberdeen and took up a professorial appointment at the University of Wollongong (2006-2016) and the University of Adelaide (2017-2019), regularly travelling between the two countries. He has held visiting professorships at Roskilde University, Lund University and the Danish Technical University, as well as an adjunct professorship at Monash University.

In extended case study research in the UK and Australia, Patrick has been actively engaged in longitudinal studies on innovation and change for over forty years in a range of organizations, including Pirelli Cables, British Rail, General Motors, Hewlett Packard, the CSIRO and Micro-X. Many of these funded projects were collaborations with scholars from other universities, resulting in the publication of over 60 refereed journal articles, 14 books, 50 book chapters and numerous conference papers.
