Summary "In Change Leadership for Developing Countries, Franca Ovadje offers readers a comprehensive and integrative model for the design, implementation and evaluation of organizational change. This unique book embodies an African perspective, discussing the specific needs and issues associated with leading change within the institutional, economic, social, and cultural context of developing economies. Based on extensive research, as well as the first-hand experiences of managers who have led change initiatives in Africa, this book envisions a change leadership model based on conscious decision-making, rather than taking a prescriptive approach. With examples and case studies drawn from African organizations, this book is a vital tool for students and managers who are based in (or interact with) emerging economies"-- Provided by publisher
