Abstract:

This study offers a thematic analysis of a sample of bestselling popular press books about planned organizational change implementation. Our purpose was to examine the common themes in advice existing within these books and determine the degree of agreement about communication and other necessary implementer strategies. In our analyses, we examined the advice given by these authors regarding the nature of change, the role of the change agents in implementation, the nature of resistance to change, general strategies for implementation, and specific actions steps that implementers should take in communicating during implementation of change. Themes within each of these general categories are presented and discussed in terms of their prevalence and general character.
