In Integrated Strategic Change, Chris Worley, David Hitchin, and Walter Ross describe a process model of change that leads organizations through strategic analysis, strategy making, and the development and implementation of a strategic change plan. By integrating the process orientation of OD with the content orientation of strategy, an organizational capability is produced that helps organizations understand when and how to make fundamental strategic change. The book is written for human resource executives, strategic planners, and line managers interested in improving the quality of strategic implementation. It can also serve as a supplemental text for business strategy courses that wish to emphasize process approaches to strategy or strategic change.
Integrating the process orientation of Organizational Development with the content orientation of strategy, the authors present a model of change and show how organizations can learn when and how to make fundamental strategic changes.
