OD in Schools: The State of the Art. Vol. I: Introduction and Executive Summary.
Fullan, Michael; And Others
This document, volume 1, summarizes the main findings and conclusions of a comprehensive assessment of the state of knowledge of Organization Development (OD) in education and the nature and extent of use of OD in school districts in the United States and Canada. The study is divided into five separate volumes. Volume 2 assesses the state of knowledge of OD in the research literature by reviewing over 50 recent sources. Volume 3 consists of two empirical studies of OD in school systems. The first study involved identifying and gathering questionnaire data on over 300 OD consultants in education in the United States and Canada. Detailed information by questionnaire and telephone was collected from a final sample of 76 districts. Volume 4 contains three onsite case studies selected from the sample of 76. Volume 5 summarizes the main results of the project as a whole and makes recommendations for how and if OD should be used and about the future of OD in schools. (Author/MLF)
