Organization Change: Theory and Practice provides an overview of the theoretical and research foundation for our current understanding of organization change, including the nature and types of change organizations experience. The author reviews various models, including a new model developed by Burke-Litwin, and uses cases to demonstrate how these models can be used to diagnose change issues in organizations. Emphasizing planned, revolutionary change over the typical gradual, evolutionary change organizations experience, Burke combines and integrates theory and research with application for insight into all aspects of organization change.

Burke does a yeoman's job in laying out the breadth and depth of change theory in organizations. This is a excellent text to better understand change theories, their history and application. I highly recommend it for graduate level work in organizational change, OD, HRD and adult education as an introduction to organizational change.Was this review helpful?
