The purpose of this book is to provide a platform for some of the current innovators in the field of managerial and organizational development in the United Kingdom and the United States to share their experiences about current and future developments. The papers included in this volume stem from an invited symposium (chaired by the Editor) at the annual conference of the Academy of Management in Kansas City in August 1976. The aim of the symposium was to bring together some active and prolific management educators and academics to provide current perspectives and futuristic visions of organization development trends. Each of the papers deals with particular innovations in different aspects of this changing and expanding field.
