Abstract: 

The theory of postmodern change management is one of the new theories replying shortcomings of other traditional and modern theories to deal with increasing and changing requirements of organizations and the entire society. Application rate of components of postmodern change management in managing system of Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor and Social Welfare has been studied in this paper in two current and desirable situations. In many related texts while considering the literature of post-modern change management, these components were discussed as “ creativity and innovation” , “ encouraging leadership based on theories of serving leader” , “ co-creation and management based on networks” , “ self-control” and “ active organization” . Descriptive-survey method was used in this research to study all managers and directors of Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor and Social Welfare in high, middle and executive levels. Dependent t-test and T-Hoteling statistical tests were used to analyze data. The findings showed that based on observed t-test, all components were less agreed than average level in current situation, but were agreed more than average level in the desirable situation. The findings of T-hoteling also showed that application rate of co-creation (management based on network) was higher in current situation, and application rate of creativity was the least one; while, desirability of encouraging leadership based on serving leader is evaluated higher than other components by means of standard scales, and application of self-control was less evaluated than other components. Generally, the results indicated that current management system of Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor and Social Welfare benefited very little from these components and were far from ideal situation.
