A Study of Relationships Between Formal Organizational Structure and Organizational Climate in Selected Urban and Suburban Schools.
Ames, John L.; And Others
In this study, assessment of the formal organizational structure was limited to a determination of authority and responsibility in personnel, supervision, curriculum, policymaking, and community relations. The study data were gathered from the results of the (1) Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire, (2) Professional Self-Enchancement Scale, (3) Assessment of Organizational Structure Grid, and (4) Principal's Perception of the Organizational Structure. The document first outlines the problem and the information-gathering procedures used, then analyzes and interprets the study findings. The appendixes reproduce some of the statistical data generated by the study, the questionnaires used in the study, and present a theoretical statement on self-enhancement as a human psychosocial drive central to the attainment of organizational goals. Also included are select bibliographies citing publications on the theory of self-enhancement, the Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire, and organizational structure and theory.
