Changes in Organizational Climate Associated with Development and Implementation of an Educational Management System. Revised.
Bonney, Lewis A.
A large urban school district has undertaken the development of an Educational Management System and monitored the impact of the administrative innovations on organizational climate. The participation of both teachers and administrators in management and decisionmaking is complemented by periodic assessment of progress in accomplishing the objectives. Principals' perceptions of changes in organizational climate as a result of these task-oriented administrative innovations demonstrated significant change from Theory X to Theory Y stlye on each dimension of Likert's Organizational Climate Questionnaire. There was evidence of change in the character of motivational forces; goal setting; performance expectations; and in the communication, interaction-influence, decisionmaking, control, and leadership processes. These changes remained intact during the second operational year. (Pages 9 and 10 may reproduce poorly.) (Author)
