*Demonstrates the breadth and complexity of the process, initiated from individual, group, and organizational levels
*Explores a more integrated approach to diagnosis suited to an era of sweeping organizational change

The assembled authors-all experienced human resources practitioners-describe actual experiences of both the process and content of organizational diagnosis and illustrate their accounts with practical case examples.
