Search tools:

Business Source Complete

Here's a short video about how to search this database:

Here's an example of a search for change management in relation to a specific organisation like IBM:

The text in the first box has been cut off, but it says "change management" or "organizational change"

The or means the database will find articles that use either of those phrases.

Note, you can increase the relevancy of your results by using the drop down boxes. Above we've specified the words should appear in the subject terms or abstract. This should remove articles that are not focused on your topic.

ProQuest Business

Another top library database with access to thousands of key management journals, magazines, dissertations plus company and industy reports.

You can use the same search strategy illustrated above for Business Source Complete.

You have fewer options when searching in Google Scholar, but you can sometimes find articles that don't appear in the other databases. The search interface is also good for beginners.

Here's an example of how you might search for your topic in relation to IBM.
