Change in Schools.
Marsh, David D.
Ways in which strategies drawn from the local change process literature can enhance the broader implementation of a new approach to site-based management (SBM) are described in this paper. The first section presents a new conceptual framework for SBM that is based on decentralizing power, knowledge, information, and rewards within systemic redesign of the educational system (Lawler and Mohrman 1992). The second section offers a review of local change literature, highlighting six complementary "lenses"--implementing innovations, linking policy and practice, local change strategies, teacher professional culture and institutional norms, change as a holistic journey, and changes in individuals. Section 3 proposes strategies drawn from the local change process literature for implementing the new vision of SBM. The final section concludes that: (1) weak implementation processes have contributed to SBM's lack of effectiveness; (2) SBM requires a robust implementation process; and (3) new forms of knowledge and information linked directly to student outcomes are needed.
