Organizational Development for Thornlea: A Communication Package and Some Results.
Croft, John C.
Organizational development in education views the school as a social system and is directed toward growth of the school's internal staff relationships so that the school can attain and sustain an optimum level of organizational performance. During a 1-week training session, involving administrative and teaching staff members at an experimental nongraded elementary school, participants were encouraged to view the school as a people-processing and growth-facilitating system. Open interaction among staff participants was stressed for improving the school's organizational performance, especially its internal problem-solving and decision-making capabilities and the creative collaboration of its staff for a product oriented, dynamic learning program.
