Vision Is Not Enough: A Plan for School Change in the 90's.
Nyland, Larry
Dynamic organizations are characterized by a compelling vision that focuses on results and employee commitment to growth. Over a period of 3 years an attempt was made to identify what it would take to create and maintain a dynamic living organization that has the ability to learn and grow on its own. Research was conducted in visits to organizations across North America and three continents; interviews were held with CEO's and other key employees at corporations, newly formed entrepreneurial businesses, and nonprofit organizations. Three main sections comprise the paper. The first titled "The Challenge," provides a perspective on why businesses, nonprofits, schools, and even nations must learn how to create communities of learners if they are to survive and thrive. Section 2,"The Dynamic Company," highlights the driving force behind successful organizations. The final section, "Dynamic Schools," describes how these characteristics of dynamic businesses have been applied in the schools of Pasco, Washington. (RR)
