Beyond the Political Model: A Strategic Model of Governance.
Benner, Richard V.
This paper describes a strategic (or situational) model of governance that focuses on organizational decision-making activity. This model differs from other organizational models in that it focuses on the issues about which the activities of an organization are focused. This situational model has several advantages. First, it provides a conceptual framework in which to view and understand decision-making over time. Second, the model provides an understanding of the types of situations with which the administrator must contend within the organization and the means of identifying each type. Third, the model suggests what the most effective decision-making structures and processes are in relation to the conditions confronted. Fourth, the model explains why decision-making structure and processes can become ineffective and fail as conditions change. (Author)
