The Development of a Questionnaire for an Organizational Development Program at Los Angeles Southwest College.
Hadley, Ollie B.; Andrews, James
An Organizational Development (OD) questionnaire was designed at Los Angeles Southwest College to enhance planned change in that educational organization. The questionnaire measures attitudes in seven organizational development concept areas: (1) institutional climate indices--opportunity for advancement, general institutional conditions, concern for employees, and employee commitment; (2) supervisory indices--concern for faculty, concern for performance, building a work team, and helping in getting the work done; (3) work department indices--supporting each other, concern for performance, working as a team, helping each other, and understood and acceptable objectives of the group; (4) job indices--freedom to influence job and resources available to do the job; (5) institutional process indices--employee effort, sharing information, cooperation in solving problems, influence of top and lower level management on department, and making decisions; (6) institutional results--employee satisfaction, turnover readiness, absenteeism because of job tensions, and work group performance; and (7) goal-setting comparisons between "how it is" and "how I'd like it to be"--supervisory indices, work department indices, and institutional results. A literature review outlining the background of OD, a bibliography, and the questionnaire are included in the document. (MB)
