Direction and Administration of Change

Joske Diesfeldt en Johann Wuestenberg van de Associatie voor OrganisatieOntwikkeling werken al ongeveer 15 jaar in hun internationaal netwerk samen met José Campoverde. Campoverde is een Peruviaans consultant die aan grote Zuid-Amerikaanse ondernemingen adviseert, zowel in Peru als in andere landen van zijn continent. Hij publiceerde in zijn recente boek een kernachtig en boeiend verslag van 35 jaar onderzoek  naar Change.
José vroeg aan Johann Wuestenberg en een aantal andere internationale collega’s een kort commentaar te schrijven: het citaat van de binnenflap:



Johann Wuestenberg
Consultant Organizational Development

I have read with much care your research and study results and was very impressed with the thoughtfulness, depth, and applicability of your ideas. The approach is clear to me, as well as the logical and progressive development of the concepts. And I really like the way that you framed your ideas in the theory of Change Management and Administration.

I really liked the categories that you used on the vertical and horizontal axes (ex. involvement and commitment to change, and participation and actions), and also the way that your were able to express the "how" to arrive at "creative individuals" and "creation of wealth". Additionally, I think that the way you developed the purposes/commitments and purposes/productivity has been excellent and thus arriving at visible change area.

I remember our discussions about involvement and commitment and I am very happy to see that you have incorporated this relationship into your theory. Also, fascinating for me is the way that you develop and accompany the structure of the personality and the structure of the power of decisions, it is really helpful for those of us who are reading your work. Congratulations on such deep, thoughtful and useful theory and you are to be commended on your contributions to our field.
