Julie Hodges and Roger Gill have presented a comprehensive summary of the landscape of organizational change.  ‘Sustaining Change in Organizations’ capably brings together a range of perspective and concepts of change, using these as a foundation for bringing the subject right up to date with contemporary ideas and examples.  While the book will win fans from business academia (it is very well referenced and signposts to further reading in each chapter), its accessible style with plenty of bite-sized cases, together with regular summaries, will no doubt see it gracing the desks of those of us tasked with delivering change for a living.
