organizational changes, scientific approaches to management, change management


The article is dedicated to the use and development of scientific approaches to change management. Despite the diversity of traditional approaches to management, in practice it is necessary to combine several approaches. Thus the new (combined) approaches appear. They develop the traditional scientific approaches to management and are deprived of their many disadvantages. However it is possible to combine only suitable approaches. The problem of a scientific approaches’ combination in management is insufficiently consecrated in literature. Besides, such approaches have to be finished for change management specially. The purpose of this article is to consider the combined approaches for the change management. The author has identified and disclosed the combined content of the main approaches to change management. Considering the features of this management direction there were described process-system and system-situational approaches. Based on the study of the change management models oriented at staff, the author singled out an independent approach of "human factor". This approach is based on the critical importance of the staff in making changes. The author has selected a number of the developed models of change management and distributed them through each respective approach. As a result of the research there was ordered and revealed a combined approach to the change management. These approaches are the variants of methodological base of the organizational changes. The combined approaches allow to relieve the unidirectional approaches` shortcomings. The description of modern approaches and systematization of models of the change management allow managers to make a choice in each case of the most acceptable approach and model for implementation of successful changes.
