SOUZA, Maíra Gabriela Santos de; VASCONCELOS, Lísian Camila  e  BORGES-ANDRADE, Jairo E. Research on change in organizations: the brazilian production on micro organizational behavior. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.2, pp. 32-46. ISSN 1984-6657.

The present text analyses the Brazilian research on organizational change, in the context of micro organizational behavior, between 1996 and 2007. The focus was on perception and believes of organizational members about these changes and on their consequences for these members. The criterion for inclusion of the articles in the analysis was that they reported data collection made in Brazil, with a clear statement of their intended aim. They were analyzed by pairs of judges, based on a standardized system which had been previously developed and has been already described for the review of micro organizational behavior. The results, based on 23 articles, show that there is not a clear national research line in this area. The major variables that have been studied on organizational change are: culture, power and psychological processes, communication and personnel management. Based on the gaps which have been found, a research agenda is proposed. It suggests, among other things, the construction of measurement instruments and more research related to culture and power

Palavras-chave : organizational change; perception and believes about change; consequences of organizational changes; literature review; micro organizational behavior.
