«'Charting a course between sound scientific insight and the recipe style of popular management texts is not easy. The authors have succeeded in doing that and blend practical examples with valuable insights. This is a book for those who are serious about achieving meaningful change in the workplace.' Tim May, University of Salford, UK 'Roger Klev and Morten Levin have written a comprehensive work that bridges significant gaps between theory and practice among various streams of literature in organization theory, OD, and management. Drawing on their broad knowledge of the scholarly literature and shaped by their experience the authors provide valuable guidance for understanding the complexity of organizational change. It is a comprehensive resource.' Lyle Yorks, Columbia University, USA»
