Contemporary organisations increasingly find themselves grappling with rapidly evolving and dynamic global settings. The focused, systematic and pragmatic approach of Organisation Development (OD) is invaluable when it comes to navigating organisational and larger systems change.

Organisation development - theory and practice provides a thorough account of this discipline and practice field from both an international and a more localised perspective. It explains but also moves beyond the fundamentals, demonstrating and applying relevant theory in practical situations. It highlights contemporary and emerging challenges, as well as long-standing historical and/or classical debates.

Organisation development - theory and practice is structured around the key stages and considerations of the action research and intervention process. Examples and illustrative case studies are provided to further develop conceptual skills in the areas of analysis, interpretation and application.

Topics include the following:

Local and international history, and defining features, values and ethics
Intervention theory, action research and appreciative inquiry
Nature, structure and categories of interventions
Organisational diagnosis and feedback
Individual, group, comprehensive and sociotechnical interventions
OD in multicultural and multinational contexts
Role and competencies of the consultant and change agent
Challenges and requirements for effective OD

Organisations affect all aspects of human existence. They operate under immense pressure to offer their goods and services efficiently, economically and at the right time, all within the confines of the domestic and international laws which govern their trading. To meet these challenges in today's ever-changing global environment, the dealings within and between organisations need to be constantly monitored. Organisational analysis and intergovernmental relations: a South African perspective discusses how organisations work, how to conduct organisational analysis and how organisations can benefit from the advantages of intergovernmental relations in order to maximise productivity, effectiveness and profitability. Organisational analysis and intergovernmental relations: a South African perspective provides an overview of organisations, and the organisational design and structures applicable to both the private and public sectors. It equips managers with the knowledge to analyse the status of their organisations and decide what approaches to employ in responding to change (whether planned or unplanned). The book also explores how the relations between the spheres of government are affected by the shifting political environment in South Africa.

Organisations are essentially social entities whose effectiveness depends on the contribution and affective commitment of people. Successful organisations do not develop by chance, but are rather the result of carefully planned interventions into their structure, leadership and management orientations, culture, processes and behaviours. Organisational behaviour: a contemporary South African perspective provides a solid and scientific foundation for understanding, predicting, evaluating and managing individual and group behaviour in organisations. Organisational behaviour explores the expectations that organisations and employees have of each other. It addresses contemporary issues related to business ethics, systems psychodynamics, engagement, performance excellence, changing communication technology, transformational and authentic leadership, diversity and globalisation. It contains encounters, discussion questions, practical exercises and case studies to stimulate self-study, debate and reflective thinking. Updated lecturer support material is also available. Organisational behaviour is aimed at aspiring as well as established managers and business owners, irrespective of their field.

Organisational change: Theory and practice is based on the premise that a deeper understanding of the change phenomenon and its consequences forms the basis for constructively acting on and managing change in organisations. The title recognises that change at the individual level is inextricable from change at the organisational level. As a result, the application of change concepts and theory consistently relates to both the individual and the organisation.

The New York Times bestselling author examines how people can drive creative, moral, and organisational progress―and how leaders can encourage originality in their organisations.
How can we originate new ideas, policies and practices without risking it all? Adam Grant shows how to improve the world by championing novel ideas and values that go against the grain, battling conformity, and bucking outdated traditions.

Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Grant explores how to recognize a good idea, speak up without getting silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt. Parents will learn how to nurture originality in children, and leaders will discover how to fight groupthink to build cultures that welcome dissent.

Told through dazzling case studies of people going against the grain, you'll encounter an entrepreneur who pitches the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who challenged secrecy at the CIA, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees who don't criticize him, and the TV executive who saved Seinfeld from the cutting room floor. Originals will give you groundbreaking insights about rejecting conformity and how to change the world.

In Our Iceberg is Melting a simple fable about penguins illustrates how to conquer change, with profound lessons for working and living in an ever-changing world. This charming story about a penguin colony in Antarctica illustrates key truths about how we deal with the issue of change: handle the challenge well and you can prosper greatly; handle it poorly and you put yourself at risk. The penguins are living happily on their iceberg as they have done for many years. Then one curious penguin discovers a potentially devastating problem threatening their home - and pretty much no one listens to him. The characters in this fable are like people we recognize, even ourselves. Their story is one of resistance to change and heroic action, confusion and insight, seemingly intractable obstacles and the most clever tactics for dealing with those obstacles. It is a story that is occuring in different forms around us today - but the penguins handle change a great deal better than most of us. Based on John Kotter's pioneering work on how to make smart change happen faster and better, the lessons you can learn from this short and easy-to-read book will serve you well in your job, in your family and in your community. And these lessons are becoming ever more important as the world around us changes faster and faster. This edition celebrates ten years since the publication of this classic business fable with new and improved illustrations and a foreword by Spencer Johnson, author of Who Moved My Cheese?

Low-resource environments call for evidence-based knowledge on resilience strategies. When the stressed contexts associated with low resources also include cumulative and chronic risk (such as HIV & AIDS, high unemployment levels, low household incomes and low literacy levels), demands on varied services are strained even more drastically - compelling empirical understandings of how systems can cushion the impact of stressors. Partnering for resilience is a pioneering book offering insights (spanning eight years) from longitudinal, participatory research based on a strengths-based intervention with teachers in varied schools (primary and secondary; urban and rural) in three South African provinces. Partnering for resilience presents new knowledge pertaining particularly to how existing resources can be managed to both implement and sustain resilience tactics to mediate the effects of ongoing adversity. An evidence-based intervention model (STAR: Supportive Teachers, Assets and Resilience), with validated fidelity of intervention across cases, is presented. STAR demonstrates how varied groups of teachers, who took ownership of the challenges their school communities faced, were able to formulate solutions and reach identified goals in order to create and sustain caring and supportive schools. The methodological nuances of integrating Participatory Reflection and Action (PRA) for collaborative knowledge production are unpacked with case-by-case examples. In addition, the book argues for inventive knowledge production where research integrates community engagement processes with research capacity development of postgraduate students and partners.

Performance auditing can play a vital role in ensuring that taxpayers' money is spent economically, efficiently and effectively. Yet because it is difficult to explain its complexities to newcomers in the field in a way that makes sense the first time round, and because no two audits are identical, there is little practical guidance on the topic available in South Africa at present. Performance auditing: a step-by-step approach fills this gap. Performance auditing: A step-by-step approach focuses, step-by-step, on those elements that are relevant to all performance audits and can be applied easily and successfully. The second edition includes, among other things, a new section on strategic planning, additional illustrations of planning working papers on efficiency and economy, and updated terminology in line with that used in publications by the Presidency and the National Treasury of the Republic of South Africa. The numerous practical examples and case studies in the book make it ideal for hands-on use as a training guide. Performance auditing is aimed at practitioners, trainers and students in auditing.

Performance information is playing a bigger and bigger role in the public service environment. Governments worldwide increasingly realise that without reliable, useful performance information, no government or manager can plan for and monitor the success of programmes and projects. Managers must therefore be able to develop, implement and maintain a performance information system, based on the business cycles of the organisation, and internal auditors must have the knowledge to audit it. Performance information for managers and internal auditors sets out best practice based on the Framework for Managing Programme Performance Information and other relevant frameworks published by the South African government in its drive towards establishing a government-wide monitoring and evaluation system. The principles provided for internal auditing can serve as the basis for developing audit programmes. Performance information for managers and internal auditors is aimed at managers who are responsible for implementing a performance information system within government, and internal auditors who have to assist management in its role.
