A Comparative Analysis of Administrative Structure and Performance of Community Junior Colleges in the State of Florida.
Scigliano, John Anthony
A study was conducted to (1) Analyze the context, structure, and performance of two community junior colleges in Florida, and (2) Determine the extent that the relationships established were consistent with Hage's axiomatic theory of organizations and Pugh's multivariate analysis of 52 organizations. A survey of authoritative literature and research was made to identify the variables for the model used in this study. A total of 34 hypotheses were developed that concerned the dimensions in the model and the theory. These hypotheses were tested with the data obtained from two junior colleges for all variables. The structural variable of participation was scaled with the aid of logical decision maps. Conclusions include: (1) When faculty participate in decisions that concern their welfare, the junior college is more efficient and adaptive; (2) An organization displays a greater readiness to change when it has a higher structuring of activities; and (3) Junior colleges in Florida increase in total number of employees at a faster rate than their FTE enrollment increases.
