Can you post how have you configured the navigation and what the bean method returns?
darkappleCommented:
a valueChangeListener never returns a String at first.

To navigate from valueChangeListener you have to use navigate handler. check the link below

also remember to add following to h:selectOneMenu
immediate = "true" - for bypassing different phases
onchange="this.form.submit()"  - for submitting any values from the FORM.

<h:selectOneMenu valueChangeListener="#{manageBean.listenerMethod}" immediate = "true" onchange="this.form.submit()">
 <f:selectItem ... .../>
</h:selectOneMenu>
