Finding your way in: managing change or changing managers

The Management of Change is a subject that is destined to be with us for many years to come, while people adjust to a world of work that is likely to be more fragmented than previous generations had come to expect. In the middle of the last century it would be fair to say that most people expected to choose a trade, profession or occupation and, if they wanted to, stay in it until retirement. Popular authors frequently refer to a period of stability after the Second World War when full employment was the objective of governments, whether in the Western world or in the more managed economies to be found elsewhere.
