Utilizing Educational Corporate Culture To Create a Quality School.
Osborne, Bill
Strategies for utilizing educational corporate culture to create a quality school are presented in this paper, which argues that the understanding of the shared belief system of organizational members is crucial to the process. Creating a quality school entails moving from a "teach the process" oriented model to one that internalizes the desired components of the educational corporate culture. To accomplish this, the organization must be examined in terms of the past, present, and future. Strategies include induction of new members through a focus on customs, maintenance of the organization through collegial relationships, and using risk-taking to improve competence and confidence. In addition, a knowledge of the corporate culture facilitates effective leadership. Conclusions are that school improvement models must connect with the educational corporate culture for affecting long-term, meaningful change, and that any effective plan for organizational improvement must impact both individual and organizational goals.
