Participation and the Implementation of Planned Change.
Louis, Karen Seashore; Rosenblum, Sheila
A variety of hypotheses dealing with the participation in decision-making of members at different levels of rural schools and the degree of implementation in these schools of planned organizational changes are explored. Participation is examined in two spheres: decisions relating to the operations of the school district in general, and planning of a specified program of comprehensive organizational change. It is hypothesized that both kinds of participation are related to the degree of implementation. It is further demonstrated that total influence in the organization can vary and that this total influence affects implementation as well. (Author)
