The main purpose for this research is to investigate on change management practices in the judiciary transformation framework in Kenya. Change represents an intentional attempt to improve in some important way, the operational effectiveness of the organization. The research reviewed literature on information inline with the research objectives. The research gives an overview of the theoretical foundation of the study, analysis of the models of change management, change management practices, factors influencing change management and lastly it presents an empirical review and summary of the literature review. The research design used was a case study and longitudinal research design was applied in this research. Longitudinal case research can be particularly valuable because one of the most difficult, but most important, things we try to identify in research is the relation between cause and effect. The study used primary data and interview guide to collect data. Content analysis was used to analyze the responses; the data was transcript and organized by systematically analyzing the transcripts. The study findings indicate that the Judiciary is one of the three co-equal arms of government. Its chief mission is to resolve disputes in a just manner with a view to protecting the rights and liberties of all, thereby facilitating the attainment of the rule of law. Change management can be approached from a number of angles and applied to numerous organizational processes. To be effective, change management should be multi-disciplinary, touching all aspects of the organization. The study concludes that management of change depends on the magnitude of the challenge faced in trying to effect change. The type of change required, the wider context in which is to occur, the specific blockages to change that exist and forces that exist to facilitate the change process. The study recommends that a powerful guiding coalition is to be established which should consist of a group of people with enough power to lead the change effort and to encourage the group to work together as a team.
