In the course of achieving well-informed economic decisions, organizational change should be incorporated not only to the organization’s strategic business plan but also included as an important consideration for managers and leaders in managing and leading people in their own workplaces. This study utilized secondary data to support the author’s claims and arguments to establish the linkage between leading and managing people and organizational change, individual and organizational benefits and other issues. Key findings suggest that organizational change and leading and managing people are both useful in organizations and regardless of management positions held by employees, change plays an essential role in coping up with the never ending changes organizationally, nationally and globally.
