This study aimed at establishing how organizational change influences performance of the Kenyan Judiciary. It sought to examine how organizational structure change, culture change, communication channels and change in technology influences performance of the Kenyan Judiciary. It also aimed at assessing the moderating influence of organizational leadership on the relationship between organizational change and performance of the Kenyan Judiciary. The study was conducted at both the Supreme Court building and the Milimani Law courts in Nairobi since they house the headquarters and main offices of the Kenya Judiciary and if anything is to be implemented, then it has to start with the head office. A descriptive survey research design was applied whereby both primary and secondary data was used. Primary data was collected by using questionnaires which were administered with the help of two trained research assistants and secondary data was derived from existing academic journals. The target population for this study was 260 respondents from which a sample size of 155 respondents was drawn using the Krejcie & Morgan Table of 1970. Stratified sampling method was used to derive a sample of the population since the target population was composed of 10 subgroups that were vastly different in number. The process of data processing and analysis was done using descriptive statistics while assisted by Statistical Package for Social Sciences. The study established that organizational change influenced performance of the Kenyan Judiciary through organizational structure change, culture change, communication channels, change in technology and organizational leadership. The study recommends training assessment needs of all judicial staff to help identify training gaps and also the operationalization of the human resource manual to encourage professionalism within the Kenyan Judiciary. A further study should be conducted on the influence of government policy on performance of the Kenyan Judiciary.
