MEGACHANGE --- HOW TODAY'S LEADING COMPANIES HAVE TRANSFORMED
THEIR WORKFORCES by William F. Joyce. The Free Press, 1999



PREFACE --- This is a book about organizations and organizational change and "theory" for "practice." It is also eclectic and integrative, and reflects an organizational reality that is too often fragmented by conventional theory and practice.
