Laura Bierema, a professor of adult education/human resource and organizational development, has published the first book on organization development theory and practice from a critical feminist perspective.
Implementing a Critical Approach to Organization Development is aimed at educators and human resource development professionals who are enacting change on individual, group and organization levels. The book also is the first organization development book written specifically for professionals that provides a “Critical Action Research Model” through a range of interventions and strategies.
Bierema’s book provides an introduction to organization development theory and practice and addresses the inherent challenges in mitigating competing interests in the process. The text is part of the Professional Practices Series from Krieger Publishing Co. Books are written to provide a forum for instructors and related professionals.
