Reviews and Endorsements

'An excellent contribution to the literature on organizational change.'
- Gareth Morgan, Research Professor, York University, Canada

'There is an urgent need for organizations constantly to remake themselves, to become more pliable. The research of Harold Bridger and his associates in this book outline how to achieve this pliability making use of Donald Winnicott's fundamental insights into transitional processes. Now we can apply these important ideas to organizational change.'
- Malcolm Pines, former Consultant psychiatrist, Tavistock Clinic, London

'Bringing together several different facets of what is termed "the transitional approach", it will be valued by consultants, management students, practitioners and all those who want to gain a deeper understanding of the processes of organisational change. It will also be a highly welcome addition to the currently available literature that aims to provide a deeper understanding of society. This book is designed to stimulate, encourage and facilitate the transitional process in people to the benefit of themselves and the social systems in which they are invoved.'
- Lionel F. Stapley, Ph.D., Director, OPUS (An Organisation for Promoting Understanding of Society)
