about

This book presents an in-depth study of organizational change and innovation in one of the UK's leading retail leisure companies. Based on a remarkably deep level of access, the authors provide a fascinating longitudinal study of the management process in action - both the formal, 'on stage' aspects of strategic change and the informal, political behaviour of those involved.
Subjects covered include:
* the changing contexts of the public house business
* from management to managing
* change processes and politics
* control and empowerment
* gender and public house management.
Work, Change and Competitionwill be essential reading for students of organizational change, as well as all readers interested in the changing nature of management/managing and organizations.

From Our Editors

This book investigates organizational change and innovation in one of the UK’s top retail leisure companies. Work, Change and Competition draws on a surprisingly deep level of access to provide an interesting longitudinal study of the management process at work -- both the formal aspects of strategic change and the informal political behind-the-scenes behaviour of those involved.
