Developing Strategies for Change

John Darwin , Philip Johnson , John McAuley

Appropriate for final year undergraduate students in Business and Management Studies and Masters. Also relevant for middle and senior managers, and people working as consultants. The aim of this book is to help the student gain a critical understanding of the core debates in strategy and change. After an exploration of the dominant approaches to strategy, the way in which these approaches relate to change is examined. By exploring how individuals respond to, and understand their own organizations, the authors introduce the concept of management mind sets, which are influenced by the dominant culture of the organisation, to discover how they influence strategic formula and responses to change. Other radical approaches to strategy are also examined.
