This research paper analyzes change management theories, processes and organizational behaviours intended to better understand how they are conducted in not-for-profit (i.e., public sector) organizations. This examination was conducted using a comprehensive literature review of current change management theories along with referring to a real case study of a global not-for-profit organization going through a comprehensive change. The conclusions seem to reveal that many change theories and theory driven outcomes are not only relevant to private sector organizations but can be successfully applied to not-for-profit organizations. The conclusions also seem to reveal that strong and competent leadership is an essential component to achieve successful change. The implications of this paper could be used to aid other public organizations in preparing for any type of organizational change initiative.
