Summary Work role transitions are among the most significant yet least understood forms of social change, and how they affect individuals' careers, self-concepts and organizational adjustment is of great practical and theoretical importance.

The authors ask how much job change is taking place, assess who is most affected, and evaluate the psychological consequences for the individual manager.
