Applying an invaluable sensemaking framework to organizational change and combining the theory and practice of implementing change, this book represents an instructive and informative view on change in business. Its strength lies in two key areas:

  • the discussion and explanation of a strategic sensemaking approach, for helping managers, management educators and students to understand organizational change
  • a longitudinal study of a major company which underwent several organizational changes, revealing some of the key problems and challenges that managers face when introducing, implementing and managing change.

Rather than being structured as a ‘how to’ book, this outstanding text provides the reader with practical insights and skills for managing (or resisting) change. Applying Weick's famous sensemaking approach, it offers a unique way to understand the processes involved in organizational change.

Review:

'This text seeks to provoke a debate rather than settle and arguament, and in this respect it remains a highly successful project ... [it] adds to our understanding of change, and offers a useful, accessible and (most important) critical contribution to the literature on sensemaking in organizations.' - Organization
