The objective of this research is to study individual understandings regarding the need for change and its causes in a Textile and Clothing Industry (TCI) case study. To achieve this objective, semi-structured interviews with managers of medium/high hierarchical company’s level were conducted. The results reveal how workers intend to intervene in the change and their attitudes on that change. Topics as characterization of the working population; awareness of the need for change and its causes; strategies used to participate on the change; why and how to make the change; expected outcomes/results, were also addressed. The findings of this study reveal an awareness of workers to the need for change and factors such as motivation, involvement, information, and adaptation were identified as important to the change. Instability and risk were identified as the most negative factors. This need to change it is essential to successfully implement a Lean Production strategy in a company.
