As businesses evolve, to keep ahead of competition, so do their expectations for their employee's performance. An employee is a key element of an organization and their overall Â performance can decide the achievements of an organization or its failures. Every business has their own specific way of doing things, due to the constant change of the business environment. This changes therefore requires organization to adopt internal changes which tends to affect the performance of employees thus may enhance organisational growth and otherwise. The general objective of this research is to evaluate the effect of organizational change on employee job performance and compare it with the transformation framework articulated by some change management theorist and also to explore whether organizational change affect the job performance of employees. This study will make use of the data that was analyzed using the content analysis approach. This is because of its major dependence on the secondary source data. The result of the evaluation will provide how organisational change can be improved. There are some reasons why it is important that an organization must always affect a change process. The organization must consider that employees are very vital in carrying out a change process. Sustainable long-term success and performance of the organization depends on employees.
