From the most trusted voice on transition, the national best selling edition of the classic guide to dealing with the human side of organizational change.


The business world is a place of constant change, with stories of mergers, layoffs, bankruptcy, and restructuring appearing in the news every day. No matter the scale, when these kinds of changes hit the workplace, the literal, situational shifts are often not as difficult for employees and managers to work through as the psychological transitions that accompany them. Indeed, organizational transitions effect people; it is always people who have to embrace a new situation and carry out the corresponding change.


Without a clear understanding of what transition does to employees and what employees in transition can, in turn, do to an organization, the job of managing workplace change can be difficult; managed poorly, the result can be disastrous to the morale and stability of the staff. As veteran business consultant William Bridges explains in detail, successful organizational change takes place when employees have a purpose, a mental picture, a plan for, and a part to play in change. In short, successful change takes place only when employees are “on board” with it.


Directed at managers on all rungs of the proverbial corporate ladder, this thoroughly updated and expanded edition of the bestselling Managing Transitions provides practical, step-by-step strategies for reaching this goal and for minimizing the disruptions caused by workplace change. It is an invaluable managerial tool for navigating an inevitably tumultuous time.
