The management of change has been a continuing concern for NHS managers. Suggests that many of the change processes over the last 25 years have been subject to fundamental flaws, preventing the successful management of change. Outlines a new approach for the management of change and examines the implications for management practice, the role of top management, and of external and internal consultancy/advisory resources.
