Research on Professional Consultation and Consultation for Organizational Change: A Selectively Annotated Bibliography

Foreword

It has been over seven decades since the first systematic thinking was organized into consultative intervention strategies applicable to individual, group and organizational change. The dissemination of information about these applications stimulated growth of the consultation field as well as questions about its efficacy in producing change.

Professors Wilson and Lubin have a combined total of more than 50 years of practice and research experience in consultation, and this bibliography is the culmination of several years of successful collaborations between them.

Professors Wilson and Lubin have met this need by designing this bibliography so
