Strategy for Change.
Berty, Ernest
The major purpose of this report is to describe the strategy utilized in the West Virginia State Department of Education to overcome barriers to educational change in an organizational setting. The first part of the report describes two interventions, disposable organization (an ad hoc institution temporarily assembled to solve specific short-term problems) and system analysis, and explains how these two interventions were implemented to bring about desirable changes in the State's school transportation system. The second part of the report, included in the appendix, is a detailed account of how system analysis applied to an ongoing State education agency program can provide useful information for decisionmakers.
