Including real life case studies on the application of CATM in organisations, the book demonstrates the possibility of a higher success rate with organisational culture change management, and provides researchers, organisations and practitioners with a clear roadmap on how to develop the CATM
toolkit for their own culture transformation journey.
Any significant organizational level change initiative is dependent on the engagement of the people working in that organization. Without engagement, change will falter and ultimately fail. Engaging Change goes behind the scenes of change management to help managers, consultants and practitioners
understand why some things work and why others don't. Engaging Change addresses current challenges such as how to understand the environmental context driving the need for change; how to initiate and sustain momentum throughout the change programme; how to institutionalize structural and behavioural
change; and how to create compelling visions. With case studies from Sony, Nestlé, Redcats (who own La Redoute, for example) and the British Army, the text provides practice-based insights into the realities of leading sustainable change.

Transport allows tourists to move from their origins to their destinations and
within destinations. The increase in tourism, and in connected mobility, has
raised sustainability issues in terms of ecological protection and the economic
efficiency of competing destinations. This book examines the links between
transport, tourism, and sustainability by means of a series of large case
studies covering several countries. Themes, frameworks and proposed policies
are discussed throughout the book. The concluding chapter of the book takes an
explicitly comparative approach and highlights the new contributions that
emerge from the case study chapters for both scholars and practitioners.

general and some specific in nature, and analyses are advanced from a host of
different disciplinary backgrounds and perspectives – but the defining feature
