Summary/Abstract: Regardless of the origin, organizational theories have made a great contribution to understanding and solving organizational issues. Much of the thesis and conclusions can be found in the contemporary theories of organization. The first theories have given ground for the emergence and development of newer theories. Therefore, we can say that their application in modern practice of general and security management is also different. Based on some characteristics of organizational theories, the conclusion can be made about their application in specific circumstances, namely the division between those which serve us for forming and directing the organization activity and those that can help us in making decisions in specific security situations, where faster decision making processes are needed based on the factors of the environment. It can be argued that all theories are still applicable, but some have greater application in specific situations than others. In modern management science, in addition to the development of the existing theories of management, new concepts and approaches in management are developed as well, some of which become the modern paradigms (Greek paradigm - model, pattern, form). These concepts and approaches include: Management in the New Society, Changes Management, Chaos Theory, Total Quality Management, Business Process Reengineering, Knowledge Management, Learning Organization, Theory of cultural harmony, and others. Specifically, in this paper, the authors show the basics of modern paradigms of management and highlight the need and possibilities of their use in the function of development of existing theories and establishment of new management theories, and their implementation in order to improve practice of general and security management.
