Research in Organizational Change and Development
This volume provides new conceptual insights, robust empirical studies, and thought-provoking chapters to help organizations improve health and wellbeing in society. Some chapters do this by addressing macro-level change: for example, consulting at the eco-system level and discussing the challenges entailed in developing intervention capabilities to impact highly interdependent eco-systems; or discussing the learning and experience of a large system transformation project conducted at a national level that had an impact on societal health and wellbeing. Other chapters extend theory and integrate perspectives that heretofore have remained separate, such as the 2017 Pasmore-Woodman Award winners, who provide an overview of their collaborative attempts at intervening and making a difference in organization studies. The richness of the diverse collaborative contributions to this volume by leading scholars and scholar-practitioners from around the globe provide an enriching and emerging body of knowledge.
