With a clear international and interdisciplinary approach, IJSCM proposes and fosters discussion on strategic change management implementation and follow-up and related topics. It offers the reader a wealth of valuable material on theories and practices which underpin successful strategic change. One of the keys to dealing with change is understanding that change is never over and brings opportunity to those who can grasp it.


 Topics covered include

  • Adapting strategic planning to the need for change
  • Managing strategy
  • Change implementation and follow-through
  • Competitive advantage and strategic change management
  • Leadership
  • The role of learning at different levels (individual, group, organisational and interorganisational level)
  • Strategic change and human capital
  • TQM

ObjectivesThe objectives of IJSCM are to establish an effective channel of communication between academic and research institutions, policy makers, government agencies and persons concerned with the complex issue of strategic change management. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of change management. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological and ecological change and changes in the competitive environment organisations face today.


IJSCM provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of strategic change management to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work:

  • Corporate heads of firms
  • Senior general managers
  • Managing directors
  • Board directors
  • Academics and researchers in the field both in universities and business schools
  • Information technology directors and managers
  • Quality managers and directors
  • Human resource directors
  • Libraries and information centres serving the needs of the above


IJSCM publishes original papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in Strategic Change Management will occasionally be published.
