The Effects of an Organization Development Program on Satisfaction, Group Process, Climate, Leadership, and Student Achievement.
Coad, Rosemary A.; And Others
The hypothesis guiding this study was that staff members from schools participating in an organizational development (OD) program would increase the functioning levels of four groups of organizational variables. The OD treatment contained three distinct phases: diagnosis, skill development and planning, and implementation. A modified Survey of Organizations (SOO) instrument was used to measure the dependent variables. The SOO was administered three times to the treatment and control groups. Limited support was found for the hypothesis. The results imply that future OD projects should be carefully scrutinized for their potential cost-effectiveness. (Author)
