This study is one of the few complete field studies of organizational change. The author's work documents a major quality of work life experiment which occurred as part of a national research program at the Institute for Social Research, at the University of Michigan. The central focus of the experiment was to allow formal participation of employees in the process of implementing various changes in the workplace. The findings demonstrate that participation had a substantial impact on the employees in this division of TVA in comparison to the control division.

rick /f Aaron /i J.Review:
?Several accounts have been written about the 6-year experiment in participative management that took place at the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) between 1972 and 1978. Nurick's treatment is by far the most complete and objective. From his vantage point as an external assessor, he presents a comprehensive case study that includes detailed descriptions of actual events, unbiased commentary concerning what the consultants did or did not do, and qualitative and quantitative data evaluating outcomes. Nurick's comprehensive overview and assessment could easily serve as a scholarly Rosetta stone for interpreting other less objective accounts of the events at the TVA.?-Contemporary Psychology
