Praise for Practicing Organization Development, 2nd Edition

"Nowadays a good roadmap is needed to navigate all the roads, and this book does a great job of telling the reader of the variety of destinations that can be reached and how to reach them . . . this book is as complete a compendium on what OD is and can be as is currently available."
óDr. Edgar H. Schein, Sloan Fellows Professor of Management Emeritus, MIT Sloan School of Management, co-founder of the Addison-Wesley OD series in 1969

"Many of our organizations are in a crucible. Crucibles are utterly transformational experiences from which one emerges either hopelessly broken or powerfully emboldened to learn and lead. This book is a bright signal of what our change field has to assist you to become successful and make a difference in all you do."
óDr. Warren Bennis, professor and founding chairman of The Leadership Institute at the University of Southern California
