The main purpose of the paper is to present a mathematical model for the optimization for the sharing of resources in parallel running subprojects of organizational change projects. A few years ago it was said that in today’s unstable, chaotic markets, the companies which are able to adapt faster to the environment will be able to draw apart from the competition and to get in front. Only a few years later it can be observed that it is not a question of getting ahead but more and more about survival – “Adapt or die”, or as Daryl R. Conner puts it, the very core of success is in the midst of transition.
