Cambietics: The New Science of Managing Change

This morning I picked up a favourite old book, one that has the title, The Dynamics of Change. Despite its very contemporary title, the book is scarcely new. It was published nearly 20 years ago, in 1967. Next to it sit more current books on change, including such best sellers as Managing Strategic Change, published in 1983, and The Change Masters, published in 1984. Both are first class books. In‐between sit other books on change: Managing Change, published in 1972 and The Change Resisters, published in 1981. Evidently, there is a definite continuity to the flow of literature on change and its management. Change is here to stay.
