Changing Organizational CultureThe Change Agent's Guidebook
To alter an organization’s culture, change agents must first understand its attitudes, beliefs and assumptions. Marc Schabracq’s innovative new book is based on a fresh way of thinking that deals with both the functional and structural features of cultures. Focusing on the greatest barrier to organizational change - the attitudes and assumptions of people – it offers three approaches that collectively assist the change process: changing goals through the leader; improving effectiveness through the members; and enriching assumptions through group dialogue. The scales, checklists and exercises are available online. A priceless resource for consultants and change agents, Changing Organizational Culture is also valuable reading for senior managers and business students interested in the change process.
