What are the root causes of the accelerating rate of change in the business environment? What patterns exist in the ways environmental change leads to organizational change? Confronted with a state of continuously accelerating change, what should managers and organizational scientists do? Organizational Change and Redesign addresses these and other questions to provide a clear and comprehensive understanding of the relationships among environmental changes, organizational redesign, and performance. George Huber, William Glick, and some of the finest authorities now working in the field of organizational change focus on specific new ideas and insights for improving managerial performance. The authors examine how changes in environment affect the overall performance of an organization. They also show how a variety of factors - including demographics, team structure, and communication processes influence the effectiveness of key managers. Drawing on multi-year studies of dozens of organizations and on interviews with top managers, the book includes practical tutorial chapters on how to analyze and manage organizational change and redesign. A thoughtful examination of fundamental issues and questions, Organizational Change and Redesign will be an essential tool for business scholars, students, and practicing managers in the middle and upper levels of organizations.show more
