Organizational Climate: Another Dimension to the Process of Innovation.
Hughes, Larry W.
The objective of this research was to determine the relationships between organizational climate and innovativeness. Investigators used the Organizational Climate Descriptive Questionnaire to determine the organizational climate for 24 Ohio school districts. An open climate is defined as one in which there is attention to both task achievement and social needs, whereas in a closed climate members receive little satisfaction from either. Findings indicate that innovative districts foster the open climate whereas noninnovative districts are characterized by the closed. Implications for the role of the principal as a change agent are also given. (RA)
