Organizational change management provides the impetus for organizations to remain competitive in the global market space. Creating a new vision, embarking on social process reengineering as well as focusing on change sustainability are critical elements for effective organizational change management and organizational growth. Change is inevitable in any human enterprise and change sustainability requires the effective application of the science and art of the change management process so as to enhance organizational growth. 112 respondents participated in the study carried out through the exploratory research design. Data were generated through primary and secondary sources and analyzed by descriptive and chi-square statistical techniques. The result showed a positive relationship between effective organizational change management and organizational growth. The study was limited by time and financial factors, and it was suggested that further study should examine the relationship between social process reengineering and change management as a way of enhancing organizational growth in Nigeria. Based on the result of the study, it was recommended that effective change management process should always recognize the importance of effective business communication as a strategy for organizational growth.
