Change is a constant element in our lives, and we have to make the best of it. In periods of rapid change, managers have to be extremely adept at trying to ëmasterí change for the benefit of their respective organisations. When the pace of change slows, managers must seek new opportunities by capitalising on the new conditions created by the preceding surge in activity. It might require everyone to learn rapidly, and to adapt cheerfully. This book provides guidelines how to manage change and will be useful to managers as well as managerial aspirants.
