About the Author:

Formerly a professor of English, William Bridges made a shift to the field of transitional management in the mid-1970s; out of his workshops has grown a long career of consulting, lecturing, and helping others through transitions. He lives with his wife in Mill Valley, California.

From Library Journal:

Business consultant Bridges (Managing Transitions, Addison-Wesley, 1991) has written an engaging and challenging book outlining how the changing nature of work will dramatically alter how we do our jobs. He persuasively argues that the present information-based economy demands more flexible employment models than a manufacturing-based economy. Bridges states that the emerging economy will not require a set pattern of work from individuals (i.e., a job) but sets of complex tasks, requiring different sets of skills at different times. He uses highly detailed statistics to buttress his arguments. His book is especially strong on the psychological implications of the changing economy, though it might have benefited from charts and graphs illustrating employment trends, such as those used in William Johnston's Workforce 2000 (Hudson Institute, 1987). Recommended for general and business collections.
