The issue of managing organizational change is of key importance within management theory and practice. A number of cases have shown that attempts to 'manage' organizational change frequently failed. Therefore the objective of this paper is to find why does the failure almost occur? Additionally, this papers objective is to provide discussion and find reply on the following questions: Which specific aspects of change are currently impacting most on practicing managers? How do they react to change? How are they dealing with them? And how successful are their attempts? How do the problems identified and solutions described, relate to the theory and research on organizational change? What kind of organizations are the most adopted to changes? The findings suggest that most companies' operational strategies and structures reflect past business realities-making organizational inertia one of the most significant obstacles to change. However, it is noted that leadership and management skills, such as visioning, prioritizing, planning, providing feedback and rewarding success, are key factors in any successful change initiative. The paper culminates with conclusions, implications and suggestions for further research.
