As with previous volumes in "Research in Organizational Change and Development", volume 11 contains papers that range from explorations of individual action in organizational change to studies of multiple organizations. The change and development field continues to explore new theoretical frames, research methods, and change practice. The chapters in this volume further demonstrate the expanding boundaries of the field.
