Organization development: strategies and models by Richard Beckhard( Book )

53 editions published between 1969 and 1988 in 6 languages and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, written for managers, specialists, and students of management, is based largely on the author's experience in helping organization leaders with planned-change efforts, and on related experience of colleagues in the field. Chapter 1 presents the background and causes for the increased concern with organization development and planned change. Chapter 2 defines organization development, training, and operations research. Chapter 3 reviews and describes the types of strategies, tactics, and activities that are used in organization development efforts. The next five chapters are case studies of organizationwide, planned-change efforts. Each case represents a specific change-target emphasis -- a change in the "culture" of the organization; in managerial strategy; and in the way work is organized; creative adaptation to a new environment; and changes in influence and communication patterns. Chapter 9 analyzes the conditions and characteristics of successful and unsuccessful organization development efforts. Chapter 10 is concerned with different strategies of managing. The last chapter looks briefly ahead to what we might expect as major influences in the field of organization improvement in the next decade. (Author/NL)
Changing the essence : the art of creating and leading fundamental change in organizations by Richard Beckhard( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rapidly changing conditions in today's business environment have made unprecedented demands on organizational leaders--demands that often require radical rethinking of purpose and priorities, visions of the future, and the very structure and functions of the organization. Changing the Essence uncovers the leadership behaviors necessary for initiating and managing fundamental change. Beckhard and Pritchard go beyond the basics, demonstrating strategies for securing organizationwide commitment to put vision into action. Beckhard and Pritchard confront the tension between short-term effectiveness (the quick fix) and the long-term health of the organization. They identify and explain each step to be taken during the transitional phase of the change process, including managing the work, creating an appropriate management structure, and developing a commitment strategy and plan
