Managing and Leading People Through Organizational Change
The theory and practice of sustaining change through people
Borrow Borrow
Tremendous forces for change are radically reshaping the world of work. Disruptive innovations, radical thinking, new business models and resource scarcity are impacting every sector. Although the scale of expected change is not unprecedented, what is unique is the pervasive nature of the change and its accelerating pace which people in organizations have to cope with. Structures, systems, processes and strategies are relatively simple to understand and even fix. People, however, are more complex. Change can have a different impact on each of them, all of which can cause different attitudes and reactions. Managing and Leading People Through Organizational Change is written for leaders with the key responsibility of managing people through transitions. Managing and Leading People through Organizational Change provides a critical analysis of change and transformation in organizations from a theoretical and practical perspective. It addresses the individual, team and organizational issues of leading and managing people before, during and after change, using case studies and interviews with people from organizations in different sectors across the globe. This book demonstrates how theory can be applied in practice through practical examples and recommendations, focusing on the importance of understanding the impact of the nature of change on individuals and engaging them collaboratively throughout the transformation journey.

Reviews-
  • Jeanny Paren, Client Development Manager EMEA, Thomson Reuters "Julie focuses on the people dimension of change that I feel is often neglected. This is a must read for every professional leader and manager and is inspirational also for those dealing with people on day to day basis."
  • Dr Deirdre Anderson, Senior Lecturer in Organizational Behaviour, Cranfield School of Management "Hodges moves beyond the technical aspects of change and the focus on overcoming resistance from individuals. Instead she focuses on people, providing practical recommendations based on frameworks and theories from the academic literature as well as comprehensive examples from practitioner experiences. In this way readers from industry, academics, and students will all deepen understanding about how to engage individuals collaboratively in transformational processes as organizational change is implemented."
  • Elizabeth Strong, Regional Manager Asia & EMEA, Human Resources, Qantas Airlines "It effectively combines theoretical and practical approaches to deliver an insightful and comprehensive consideration of the people aspects of change management in the context of accelerating global change and disruption."
  • Cyril Lebel, Client Service Partner, Customer Presales and Service - Americas, Vodafone Global Enterprise "Hodges puts people at the heart of organisational change.... This book... provides insights on people's emotions and decision making process without falling into overly complex considerations or debate. Furthermore it equips the people who need to lead or manage change with some very practical tools and techniques."
  • Professor Rune Todnem By, Journal of Change Management Editor-in-Chief and Co-founder, the Public Leadership Foundation "This book will enable everyone with an interest and drive for leadership and management responsibilities to better engage with those we work for: our people. Because it is only through our people that we will ever deliver successful change."
  • Tom Woolgar, Director of Corporate Banking, Scotia Bank "This book explains and articulates that understanding and managing change cannot be done without understanding human emotion. It is the combination of this understanding with practical tools and guidance that makes this book so relevant and so effective for individuals, leaders, HR managers and organisations alike."
  • Christine Hartridge Commercial Manager, Philips UKI "This book successfully translates theory into practise with realistic scenarios for reference. The insights into the experience of others is invaluable. A must for executives and managers!"
