The effect of many factors have been examined and suggested to make change implementation successful; however, organizations still report a high failure rate of their change initiatives. This high failure rates highlight the continuing need for further research to examine the factors influencing the success of organizational change implementation. As a result, the study attempted to examine the effect of internal communication, leadership, information communication technology usage, organizational culture and organizational change management method on the success of organizational change implementation construct. To undertake the study, the mixed research approach with cross- sectional time dimension was used. The data  for the study was collected from 157 employees of Ethiopian commodity exchange authority using self-administered questinnaires. Both descriptive and inferencial methods were employed to undertake the analysis. From the inferencial method multiple regression model was applied.  Principal component analysis was also used for testing factors reliability in composite factor construct and reduction of the multiple factors to a single composite factor.The study found that leadership, internal communication, organizational culture and organizational change management method have positive and significant effects on the success of organizational change implementation in the authority. In contrary, the effect of independent variable -information communication technology- on the success of organizational change implementation is not statistically significant. To be more specific, a one unit increase in leadership composite index , internal communication index,  organizational culture index, and organizational change management method index will brings 0.958, 0.61, 0.42 and 0.59 unit increment in Organizational change implementation  success index holding other factors constant.
