Research in Organizational Change and Development
This volume includes papers by an international and diverse set of authors including Michael Beer, Victor Friedman, Luiz Gomez & Donna Ballard, Ethan Berstein & Frank Barrett, Karen Jansen & David Hoffman, Guido Maes & Geert Van Hootegem, and Tobias Fredberg, Flemming Norrgren & Rami Shani. The ideas expressed by these authors are as diverse as their backgrounds. New methodologies are introduced, such as the strategic fitness process for engaging leaders in better understanding the reactions of employees to strategic change efforts (Beer); Jazz as a metaphor for organizational improvisation (Bernstein & Barrett); and new theories for understanding change processes (Gomez & Ballard). The universal constant is change, and there are various ideas about sustaining change (Fredberg, Norrgren & Shani), mapping momentum changes during change efforts (Jansen & Hoffman), and exploring Lewin's notions of the criticality of social space to facilitate change (Friedman). This text demonstrates that as academics we advance the work in our field by looking forward and looking back. Understanding the origins of our theories and beliefs can be as important as pioneering new ideas and methodologies.
