About this book


Many companies and organisations have embarked upon change programmes as part of a quest for a common vision, identity and set of values. These programmes are frequently frustrated by company politics based upon less obvioius power structures within the company or organisation. This book examines the nature of this conflict and proposes a methodology to demonstrate how long term change can be successfully implemented.

'For anyone and everyone who has ever complained about, been involved in or played company politics, this book is a must.' - Carole A. Legon, Human Resource Development Consultant, Department of the Environment

'This is a daring and uncomprising book, that goes beyond theory and soundbite checklists to reach into the well protected borders of the corporate comfort zone.' - Tim Cassewll, Managing Director, Creative Connection

'Confronting Company Politics provides a provocative and fascinating insight into a subject which is often swept under the carpet. It describes well the behaviours and attitudes which will need challenging if businesses are to improve their competitive advantage in the global market place.' - Helena Feltham, Personnel Executive, Marks and Spencer Plc
