In organizations, changes occur for many reasons and can take many forms. Some changes occurred due to the development efforts of organizations such as the downsizing of workers, reorganization, new leadership or new personnel. Other changes can be caused by government regulations or changes in external conditions overall. Welcome the free trade era, the more it takes professionalism as a cultural basis for winning the competition is free. Several organizations in Indonesia are still heavily influenced by the local culture known as guyub, namely culture that emphasizes brotherhood or relationship (relationship). On the one hand, this culture has advantages, but sometimes also an obstacle to be able to be professional. So we need a cultural shift, from culture guyub become professional culture. The following study is an action research conducted on an organization with a strong culture guyub. The study took two years, given the absolute change process requires a relatively long time. Although basically a mash of this study took place, but some changes have been made, while several other changes is still a draft. All changes are aimed at improving the Quality of Work Life with 5 dimensions according to the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (EWON, 2002), Basically all these efforts made to drive the organization toward the development of the organization by managing the changes are there, so the negative impact of the changes can be minimized. The following research is actually a part of a series of several studies. The first step begins with a survey of QWL in organization X, in order to determine the condition of the base (base line) organization. This data is then used as a reference to determine further action.
