The basic purpose of this research is to examine which factors have an influence on the choice of method of change and how they are linked to negative consequences which result from an inappropriate approach towards change. A quantitative approach to research work is applied. The data was obtained by a questionnaire, and then processed by using the method of factor analysis and multiple regression. Based on research findings we could conclude if between the factors of choice of change methods and negative consequences exists a direct link. The research is especially important for managers in the transition period when they approach different change methods proposed by consulting companies, academics and others. If management during this process will consider inappropriate factors in selection of change methods we believe the probability of failure, understood as lower added value for organization stakeholders, will increase. The research introduces new findings concerning the link between factors of choice of change methods, and the extent of the undesired consequences of change. Research studies of this nature are not presently to be found in the literature on change management.
