Product description

From the most trusted voice on transition, this is a thoroughly updated and expanded edition of the classic guide to dealing with the human side of organizational change. It includes a new introduction and provides step-by-step strategies for minimizing the disruptions caused by workplace change. MANAGING TRANSITIONS addresses the fact that it is people who have to embrace a new situation and carry out the corresponding change. The good news is that while the changes we are facing differ from any we've experienced before, the transition process by which people get through change does not alter and is outlined in this book. It helps you understand what is happening and navigate the transitions successfully. In this third edition of a book that has sold over 500,000 copies, William Bridges has added a new Introduction about managing change in a world where all the rules have changed, particularly when information can travel around the globe in an instant. As he notes: 'We're not saying that transition management is easy - just that you can do it. Which is a good thing, since you don't really have a choice. If you want to know where - and how - to start charting a way through chaos, this book is for you.'

Review quote

'Calm, lucid and encouraging. Bridges' book remains a classic years after it first appeared - praise indeed in a time of great change. His range of anecdotes and quotations is impressive, his arguments logical and persuasive.' --Management Today 'Change and rate of change are more dynamic today than ever. Bill Bridges has attacked an area of managing change that many not only avoid, but also do not even recognise - the human side of change. This is a valuable contribution.' --Robert Levy, Personnel Manager, Hewlett-Packard 'A valuable and useful work for a great range of practitioners who are inevitably involved with change in their companies. The analogies used in this book are valuable and memorable. MANAGING TRANSITIONS is a useful step-by-step handbook for specialists and practitioners.' --People Management 'A very human approach to management and a worthy complement to the many books which take a harder approach to organisational change.' --Professional Manager 'A well thought out and stimulating work which challenges pre-existing beliefs and approaches to planning and managing organisational change.' --Training Journal 'The late William Bridges is acknowledged as one of the most influential experts in the field of personal change.' --Psychologies Magazine
