The Psychology of Organizational Change: Viewing Change From the Employee's Perspective (September, 2013)
Shaul Oreg, Alexandra Michel, and Rune Todnem By (Eds.)
In a rapidly changing world, with constantly shifting dynamics, organizational change may prove essential if businesses are to continue to succeed. The majority of research on organizational change adopts a macro outlook, focusing on strategic issues from the perspective of the organization and its management. In this volume we undertake a micro perspective, focusing on the individual and, more specifically, the importance of the employees and their reactions to organizational change. This focus expands our understanding of why change initiatives frequently fail. The Psychology of Organizational Change constitutes an essential resource for scholars, students, and practitioners in the field of organizational change and development who strive to understand how to make change work not only for the organization, but also for its members.• Proposes a unique view of organizational change focusing on recipients' reactions which directly addresses factors relating to those most influenced by change • Combines empirical findings, broad integrative reviews and advancement of new theories • Contributions from the leading scholars in the field gives readers access to cutting-edge findings and conceptual formulations [from publisher web site]
