Framework for Analysis and Insightful Action in Organizations.
The intent of this document is to provide a frame of reference to help a person in any organization assess where the organization is; what might be happening next to the organization; and in what ways he/she can influence the organization in an effective, useful, timely, and functional manner. The structure of most organizations is the result of a decision by somebody at a given point in time which arranges people, roles, responsibilities, and resources in a certain way to get some things done. The stages of organizational growth are: (1) formal/informal, (2) demonstration/developmental, (3) installation/maintenance, and (4) personnel/program. The evaluation of where the organization perceives itself to be and in which direction the organization will move forms the basis for judging which appropriate action will influence the actual activity of the organization about its mission, its style, and its social usefulness. (Graphs are included which depict the various organizational stages.) (RC)
