For this purpose, I conducted a historical comparison of the Commission s reform attempts between 1952 and 2004.<br />Facing a lack of theoretical understanding of managerial reforms at the international level, this study aims at contributing to uncover theoretical explanations of administrative reforms in international organizations which the European Commission is a case of. Thus, this study gives an overview of theoretical accounts representing possible paths for studying the research object.<br />The reviewed theoretical background includes three threads of literature: managerial reform in international organizations, public sector reform and change management in the private sector.<br />Following an exploratory logic, a factorial scheme of 15 potential influencing factors is developed on the basis of these theoretical accounts. This analytical frame places interactions of key actors center stage and applies this approach to analyzing seven successful and three failed reform initiatives. Three out of the seven modernization initiatives have note been researched<br />until this study. To answer the research question, the individual cases of modernization were compared and their success or failure was linked to influencing factors. Thereby, seven factors were identified as factors directly affecting the success or failure of formal implementation.<br />Formulating theoretical assumptions on these 'success factors' of managerial reforms marks an important step toward theorizing managerial reforms in the European Commission and other international organizations.
