Reshaping Change : A Processual Perspective, Hardback Book

Reshaping Change : A Processual Perspective Hardback

Part of the Routledge Studies in Organizational Change & Development series


This book views change as an ongoing process that should not be solidified or treated as a series of linear events.

In drawing on data collected from over 40 years of research, it highlights the theoretical and practical value of using a processual perspective.

Illustrative examples from a range of organizations including: Micro-X, General Motors, Pirelli Cables, BHP Billiton, Royal Dutch Shell, British Rail, British Aerospace, Hewlett Packard, Laubman and Pank and the CSIRO make the approach understandable and accessible to both researchers and practitioners. In a theoretical exploration of temporal context, sociomaterial relations and power-political processes the dynamics of changing organizations is brought to the fore and the implication for reshaping change examined.

On the practice of engaging in longitudinal research, study design, data collection and processual analysis, as well as the write-up and dissemination of findings, are all considered.

Reshaping Change: A Processual Perspective captures the truly complex processes of changing organizations and illustrates how these are best understood from a processual perspective.
