We are very excited to invite you to contribute a chapter to a volume we are co-editing on “Why Change is the New Normal. Managing Transformational Shifts”. We plan to publish with Palgrave Macmillan in the UK; initial contacts with the commissioning editor have indicated a strong interest.

The compendium of writings is intended to shed light on business transformation. Our wish is to bring together international business practitioners, academics, and market researchers. We want to provide firms with a sound foundation for managing transformational shifts, and offer a comprehensive perspective of how to cope with change, both expected and unexpected.
