Authors: Dr. Koros, S. K., and Kerich, H. (2014)


The current trends in business activities around the world necessitate an organization to embrace change. Every organization formulates their strategies on how well they can position themselves in a better competitive advantage over others. In the process of getting to the position where they plan to be in future, changes have to be implemented as part of the strategy. Change management is a process of continuously renewing a company’s direction, framework, and abilities to provide services to all organizational clients (Moran & Brightman, 2001).

Change constantly occurs in organizations at all functional levels and every organization endeavors to bring about change for the betterment of all the stakeholders (Burnes, 2004). The need for management change has come about because of globalization and technological advancement. The current business environment is highly competitive and for an organization to survive and continue operating successfully it has to embrace change.

In addition, the challenges faced by the leaders who are responsible for management change will be analyzed. Management change goes hand in hand with the organizational strategies. This therefore requires the consultation or consideration of the laid down strategic plans whenever a change is planned or implemented.
