From Barnes & NobleDo work groups at your business interact internally as "headless horsemen," "feudal lordships," or "mindless centipedes?" In this book, organizational experts Jeff Evans and Chuck Schaefer identify the weaknesses of those work-group structures, and offer advice on how to reshape them so they function more effectively. That process, in turn, is part of the co-authors' 10-step, action-oriented approach to organizational change. "This book has been created to be a bridge between theory and practice in guiding organization change ... It approaches organization change as work, something that people can do, rather than as something that happens to them." So, if you're a "steward of change" at your organization, check out this instructive title.
