Data collected was analyzed by dialogical interpretation method, and it was identified that change management was focused on ‘the transparency of financial management'. Second, the transparency of financial management approach as found in the first stage was then measured its impact on internal stakeholder satisfaction structured into ‘supplier-customer work chain’, and team work into ‘teachers' perception on successful teamwork’. Data was collected through survey on 30 teachers and then analyzed using descriptive technique. The result showed that average internal stakeholder satisfaction score was higher than that of team-work.
