Change is not something new; it is a feature of human existence itself. We all know that without change there is no life and the people’s desires to improve their living conditions involve adapting to change. Today’s organizations operate in a constantly changing environment, the ability to adapt to environmental changes becoming a prerequisite for the success of the organization. The main objective of this paper is to emphasize the importance of organizational change in today’s society and the need for public administration reform in Romania. This paper is a theoretical framework that combines elements from the topic of new public management regarding the implementation and mission in the area of Romania’s public institutions’ delicate situation and the urgent need to change the whole system. The first part of the article addresses the issue of change and innovation in public organizations and the second one presents the government's strategy to adopt public administration reform.
