Organizational Development in the Public Sector
David Carnevale
Price: $ 23

As a stand-alone treatment of Organizational Development (OD), this is an excellent supplement to traditional textbooks in the field and is a good addition to readings in organizational behavior and principles of management. Carnevale provides the essentials of OD and more through his strong handling of the field's underlying values and assumptions. Organizational Development in the Public Sector covers many of the standard OD topics like action research, group dynamics, and coverage of OD as a field of study. There is considerable treatment of change, resistance to change, and defensive conduct concerning transformation in organizations. Carnevale also explores conflict resolution, leadership issues, systems theory, public-private differences, process consultation, a brief history of modern management reform, group dynamics, trust, hierarchy, and labor relations.

David G. Carnevale earned his Ph.D. in public administration from Florida State University. Professor Carnevale has served as the Samuel Roberts Noble Presidential Professor at the University of Oklahoma, where he is currently a Professor of Human Relations and Political Science. He has been involved in an extensive number of training and consulting exercises with both public and private organizations.
