    () (Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies, Romania)


This paper focuses on the organizational change in the management field. In the first part there are revealed the main five causes of the management change increasement and the evolution in its characteristics. Further, organizational changes are analysed from two points of view – amplitude and deepness. A special attention is paid to the identification and to the analysis of the eight essential dimensions of organizational changes: managerial, informational-gnosologic, human, economic-business, technical-material, methodological, ecological and temporal. In the last part of the paper we propose a new typology of organizational change based on five criteria – importance and magnitude of changes, nature of changes and of the system inside organization, changes evolution in time, way to change manifestation and role of human factor in initiating and development of change.
