The current globalization era has forced all organizations including educational organizations not only to continue reassessing their practices, but also to develop and enhance the culture of change and innovation. This is necessary to keep them in a dynamic and competitive position. Since change is initiated in response to the emerging needs in an organization, managing change can be considered as planning innovative implementation in order to address organizational needs and sustainability. However, managing the process of change is a crucial task for improving the quality and systematic delivery of teaching and learning in educational organizations. This paper reviews related literature on the concept and understanding of change in educational organizations. Moreover it highlights management strategies and functions for successful implementation of the change process in educational organizations.
