A Catalogue of Products That Can Aid Schools in Doing Organization Development and Needs Assessment.
Hoffman, Cynthia K.
The products in this catalogue are programs and publications designed to help schools with staff development programs that are aimed at improving organizational functioning and communication (organization development), or at conducting needs assessment. The organization development products and publications reviewed are designed to help schools understand and become more skilled in group process, interpersonal communication, group problem-solving, planning for change, and improving role relationships in complex school organizations. Needs assessment products and information reviewed in the catalogue are designed to help schools gather demographic information and survey the school community to identify curriculum and school organization needs. The needs assessment products typically include data-gathering instruments and surveys of parents, teachers, and students. For most products, the catalogue includes such information as types of activities faculty are required to perform, personnel required to administer the product, time required, expected outcomes, and sources of further information about the product.
