Agents of Change

Crossing the Post-Industrial Divide

Charles Heckscher, Michael Maccoby, Rafael Ramirez, and Pierre-Eric Tixier

This book investigates the change from monopoly status to open market competition in large public companies in the US and Europe. Based upon the authors' consulting experience at At & T, Lucent, Electricite de France and the Italian State Railways, it reflects upon the implications of this transformation for democracy, stakeholder relations and the well-being of the actors, and considers how outside interveners can help make the change both easier and fairer to all parties.
