Praise for the previous edition:
""Cheung-Judge and Holbeche have given a wonderful gift to the field of organization development and to OD and HR practitioners of all levels of experience. This book offers a remarkable combination of history of the pioneers, review of important thinkers and theories about organization change and leadership, as well as a how-to resource for the practitioner, including many illuminating case studies. ...Cheung-Judge ...explores the complex and ambiguous role of OD practitioners in their efforts to provide effective consulting help to their enormously complex organizations. ...Holbeche frames her perspective on HR in relation to OD by exploring the current challenges facing HR professionals in their role as critical supports to organization leaders. ...Cheung-Judge and Holbeche have written a coherent, comprehensive, and practical review of thought leaders, theories, and methods of OD and HR; and they have made a compelling case for the importance of greater integration and collaboration of the two disciplines in support of their organizations' successes. ...a valuable companion to both OD and HR professionals... ...insightful and useful." --Judy Vogel, OD Practitioner
"The book comes into its own by clearly differentiating what benefits OD brings but being careful to point out that it is vital to go through a series of steps rather than trying to jump in mid-way through as we're probably all tempted to do at times." --HR Network
"Cheung-Judge, who speaks, writes, and delivers organization development training programs in the UK, and Holbeche, an author, speaker, consultant, and researcher, supply students and organization development and human resources practitioners...with a guide to the basic principles of effective organization development. They overview its history and theory, various phases, the role of the practitioner, aspects of power and politics, and human resources context, with discussion of organizational design, culture change, managing transformational change, and developing effective leadership." --Book NewsInc.
"[A]s a textbook and reference book for people interested in OD this book is good value, and worthy of a place on the practitioner's bookshelf." --Pete Sayers
"The first edition of Organization Development was a very useful compendium of theories, practices, and figures with well-informed guidance for practitioners. This new edition is even more so with expanded, updated, and new sections on complexity and chaos theories and approaches, Dialogic OD, the logistics and infrastructure that support change, behavioral change, organization agility and resilience, and employee engagement. Mee-Yan Cheung-Judge and Linda Holbeche have again produced a valuable handbook for both the beginning and experienced OD practitioner."--John D. Vogelsang "Editor-in-Chief, OD Practitioner "
