Managing Change in Organizations

Additional resources:


November 2019 | 336 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

In Managing Change in Organizations, Stefan Sveningsson and Nadja Sörgärde explore a broad range of perspectives on change management, encouraging critical reflection and making sense of a complex field of theories.  Their unique approach based around three key perspectives of change will help students understand: 

  • How change is accomplished – the tool perspective
  • What change means for those involved – the process perspective
    And
  • Why is change initiated (and is it necessary) – the critical perspective 

This focus on the common how, what and why questions offers students the chance to learn pragmatic tools for managing change, as well as gain an in-depth understanding of different theories and their value.

The book is complemented by a range of online resources including PowerPoint Slides, Multiple Choice Questions, and a selection of SAGE Business Cases and journal articles.

Stefan Sveningsson is Professor of Business Administration at the School of Economics and Management, Lund University, Sweden.

Nadja Sörgärde is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Economics and Management, Lund University, Sweden.
