Organizational Change

Program/Project Management Resource List #11

Revised September 2017

"Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are.", Brecht.

Change is the one thing that we must all face. NASA, like the other federal agencies, must trim its sails according to decisions made in the Oval Office and on Capitol Hill. Other changes are caused by advances in technology and by economic shifts. This bibliography is about the process of organizational change, and the history of change efforts in NASA and similar organizations. For information on managing the flow of change, how you can move changes along instead of being moved by them, and on creating an organizational environment that is receptive to change, please see the library's resource lists on Change Management, Change Agents, Corporate Culture, and the Learning Organization.

The following is a select bibliography of pertinent materials accessible to the patrons of the NASA HQ Library. All items are available at the Headquarters Library, except as noted. NASA Headquarters employees and contractors: Call x0168 or email Library@hq.nasa.gov for information on borrowing or in-library use of any of these items. Members of the public: Contact your local library for the availability of these items. NASA Headquarters employees can request additional materials or research on this topic.
