Abstract

This paper reports an investigation into the existence of material differences between the respective

approaches to change management of consultants and corporate managers. The narrative accounts proffered

by participants are examined in three primary dimensions, sensemaking, sensegiving and overcoming

resistance to change. Relationships between these dimensions are explored and an effort at establishing best

practice approaches is made.
