An Analysis Model for Center Governance.
Priselac, Nancy J.; Priselac, Stephen M.
This paper discusses the development and design of an analysis model for governance of teacher centers organized in consortium form. A consortium is descirbed as "an organization of autonomous bodies or individuals which bond together by some relatively formal agreement to secure some benefit." The consortium generally functions in a collaborative manner through representatives with authority to act within defined parameters. To analyze the concept of governance, five reference analysis factors have been identified: (1) benefits; (2) control; (3) protectionism; (4) rights; and (5) veto. The basis of the analysis model is couched in asking four questions in reference to each of the five analysis factors: (1) who; (2) what; (3) how; and (4) why. Apply each of these questions to the interactant: center, individual, represented organization, and clientele group. After all questions have been completed, the composite can be drafted for each interactant, for each analysis factor, and for each question. The concept of risk is the final factor. It involves three basics by nature: (1) the amount of resources for which continued existence is not assured; (2) the length of time to which resources are committed; and (3) the proportion of resources committed to a single venture. In the final view, the organizational workability of all the interactants is largely dependent on the benefits realized versus the risks taken and the resources and independence given away. (DMT)
