Description

The NTL Handbook of Organization Development and Change, Second Edition

The NTL Handbook of Organization Development and Change is a vital tool for anyone who wants to know how to effectively bring about meaningful and sustainable change in organizations—even in the state of turbulence and complexity that today’s organizations encounter. Featuring contributions from leading practitioners and scholars in the field, each chapter explores a key aspect of organization development. In this new edition, each of the 34 chapters has been revised in response to recommendations from the contributors and NTL members.

“These 34 chapters articulate exactly what grounds organization development! Issues and perspectives involving training, groups, practice, and the global world are current and thought provoking.”

Therese F. Yaeger Ph.D., professor, OB/OD Department, College of Business, Benedictine University

“There is no other source that offers such a rich array of the most current and future-thinking topics from so many leaders in the field.”

Robert Gass, Ed.D., co-founder, Rockwood Leadership Institute

“The editors accomplish the difficult task of including theory, concept, and method that will appeal to the academic community as well as those who are focused on being an effective practitioner.”

John D. Carter, Ph.D., president, Gestalt OSD Center
