Fundamentals of Organization Development Synopsis

Applying a reflective behavioural science approach to the effectiveness and improvement of organizations, organization development has embedded itself firmly in the bricks and mortar of organization studies in the last half century. This collection brings together, for the first time, a diverse range of papers in the field, serving as the first point of reference for practitioners and academics alike. Adopting a critical perspective, the pre-eminent editors have brought acknowledged twentieth-century milestones together with modern classics from the founders of this core theoretical area of organization studies, as well as other largely unacknowledged and difficult to find highlights - a renewed focus on which will help redefine understanding of the field.
