An excellent text that offers a range of strategies to manage and implement change in the workplace. Using case studies further adds to the credibility of approaches used that can be applied in different contexts.

Change Management – Paton & McCalman
This book gives a very practical guide to the implementation and management of change. The book is set out in four distinct parts. Part one introduces change management, its nature, management & gender implications and mapping change. Part two discusses intervention strategies. Part three looks at the organisation development model, while in part four several practical cases are discussed in detail. Overall the book takes a very practical approach to the management of change and, as mentioned by Rodrigues in the foreword ”the focus very firmly remains on the nuts and bolts of organisational change”.
