Abstract: The basic purpose of this research is to examine if influence factors in change methods choice are linked to an inappropriate approach (i.e. deficiencies) towards change. A combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches to research work was applied. The data were obtained by a semi-structured interview together a questionnaire, and then processed using the method of factor analysis and multiple regression. Based on research findings we can conclude that between the factors of choice of change methods and deficiencies in the implementation of change taken as a whole, there is no direct link. However, two dimensions of the factors in the choice of method of change have a positive influence on deficiencies arising during the implementation of change.
