Cutbacks as change management

The financial crisis forces public managers to implement cutbacks within their organization. In this new paper, to appear in PMR, Eduard Schmidt, Sandra Groenveld and I argue that adopting a change management perspective contributes to our understanding of cutback management by adding a focus on managerial behaviour regarding cutback-related organizational changes. Relying on change management literature, this paper develops a framework for the analysis of cutback management connecting the context, content, process, outcomes and leadership of cutback-related change.
