This title is a Pearson Global Edition.  The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.


Business is changing at break-neck speed, so managers must be increasingly active in reorganizing their firms to gain a competitive edge.

Organizational Theory, Design, and Change continues to provide students with the most up-to-date and contemporary treatment of the way managers attempt to increase organizational effectiveness.  By making organizational change the centerpiece in a discussion of organizational theory and design, this text stands apart from other books on the market.

The sixth edition has been updated to reflect the most recent trends in real-world managing techniques. Examples have been updated to provide vivid illustrations of such techniques in action.
