Managing an "Organistically-Oriented" School Intervention Program.
Barrilleaux, Louis E.; Schermerhorn, John R., Jr.
An "organic" relationship between change agents and clients is a well-popularized goal in recent literature on planned change and organization development. There is, however, a dearth of literature on how to manage change programs under parameters set by this organic value. This paper examines one school organization development program for the benefits and costs realized in an "organically-oriented" change program. A series of summary observations on this case offers points of reflection for practitioners seeking prescriptions for their own behavior and for researchers seeking to increase our knowledge of change processes.
