Abstract: Change is perceived as a tool to adapt an organization to or to take benefit of the continuously-developing environment. While researchers and practitioners agree that organizational change should become a common element in the organizational life, evaluating the success of a change endeavour is subject to various challenges.
Regardless the initiating trigger of change (emergency or opportunity), the organizational change is perceived as a process that reflects a project management approach. Therefore, its’ success is evaluated through the elements of the “iron triangle of the project management”, also known as The Triple Constraints of Project Management: scope, budget, and schedule. If any of them is missing, then change success is doubtful. The change assessment through these elements is important for change-leader and the implementation team.
Our endeavour aims to analyse changes within a number of 126 organizations in Romanian to identify the characteristics / specification of the organizational change success, clarifying features that can be used in the planning of organizational changes.
Keywords: Organizational change, change success, implementation schedule, budget, proactive organizations, reactive organizations.
