A thoroughly updated and expanded edition of the classic guide to dealing with the human side of organisational change.
'It isn't the changes that do you in, it's the transitions. They aren't the same thing. Change is situational: the move to a new site, the reorganization of the roles on the team, the revisions to the pension plan. Transition, on the other hand, is psychological; it is a three-phase process that people go through as they internalize and come to terms with the details of the new situation that the change brings about...I'm not saying that transition management is easy - just that you can do it. Which is a good thing, since you don't really have a choice. If you want to know where - and how - to start charting a way through chaos, this book is for you.' William Bridges, from Managing Transitions
