Formatted abstract
This report was compiled principally from literature discussing the management of change in organizations based on the Organizational Development (OD) approach. The study shows that the world currently faces rapid change and therefore, managed change in organizations is sometimes necessary to enable them to survive and be effective.

To manage change successfully, diagnosis and planning are essential. The effects of change on other parts of the organization must be considered. Problems such as lack of commitment and resistance to change are possible and should not be ignored. Participative management and the awareness of benefits of change for both the organization and its staff are believed to help implement change successfully.

Interviews were conducted with the Youth Advocacy Centre and the Australian Telecommunications Corporation (Telecom Australia) regarding organizational change, and the findings were consistent with those reported in the literature.
