Practitioners and scholars from a variety of fields, including education, management, and engineering contribute to a learning tool for both practicing and aspiring consultants. They present the fundamentals of thinking about, evaluating, and changing organizations. The 130 articles, some reprinted and the rest commissioned, discuss such topics as managers and project leaders conducting their own action research interventions, performance appraisal techniques and applications, some guidelines from experience on easing the rigors of mergers, the dominant intervention theory and its selected shortfalls, organizing innovation as the management of interdependencies in networks, tailored management development as a vehicle for strategy implementation, and rethinking organization development for the learning organization. The first edition was published in 1993. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
