Abstract: Management's role in the management of executing change is a critical issue for successful outcomes of strategic initiatives. The purpose of this case study is to examine how an organisational justice framework can be used to explore employees' perceptions of trust, fairness, and the management of change during a period of strategic changes for a media organisation in Cyprus, and the role of leadership in these changes. A multiple-case study research design contributed to this qualitative case study in the interest of advancing organisational justice theory regarding fairness, trust, and the management of change from an employee perspective. The research design also produced valuable information and knowledge, since which management could more effectively implement organisational changes during times of strategic change.

Keywords: change management; organisational trust; fairness; Cyprus; strategic change.
