Abstract

Chapter 4, ‘Managing change’ looks at the context of change in care services. Rogers and Reynolds argue that managing is managing change, and describe this as a continuous process rather than a neat and tidy event with clear start and finish points. Different models are used and applied to an example of a major change process in a service for adults with learning disabilities. The vision of what might be, and how to do things better acts as a major incentive to all concerned to take part in change that will inevitably be disruptive for individuals.
