In 1982, many organizational consultants began using the concept of qtransformationq because they found it more descriptive of their work than the concept of qdevelopment.q Changes in organizational life and processes had become more complex, and the outcomes less certain, than the traditional practice of qOrganizational Developmentq could address. This Second Edition of Transforming Work contains the original collection of 17 chapters from these pioneering consultants, plus their updated reflections on their work at the turn of the century.
