  • Abstract This paper offers a general overview of the past theories of change management applicable to organization of all kinds that we will adapt to a special case of change and a specific target: expansion in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The aim of this Master thesis is to explain what the manager should accomplish in order to run an effective change management, by both motivating the change to generate its appropriation or, in opposition, preventing or overcoming the resistance to change.
    Despite the existence of numerous change models, the change failure rate in these cases is still dramatically extreme. By analyzing testimonies from qualitative interviews, we will try to understand the source of this failure when talking about change management and employee implication. Finally, we will come up with suggestions in accordance with the previous change models for future similar managerial changes.
