The study was conducted in the central region in Uganda. The population consisted of 150 respondents with a sample size of I 09. Data was collected by use of questionnaires according to the research objectives and questions which were encoded into the statistical research package for social sciences (SPSS). Data was processed and analyzed using descriptive statistics to show the frequencies and percentage distribution. The mean and standard deviations were applied to establish the level of adapting to change and organizational growth in the selected MDis in the central region in Uganda.
