Understanding and Facilitating Organizational Change in the 21st Century: Recent Research and Conceptualizations. ASHE-ERIC Higher Education Report, Volume 28, Number 4. Jossey-Bass Higher and Adult Education Series.
Kezar, Adrianna J.
A critical synthesis of research literature on the process of organizational change at the institutional level is needed because higher education is being asked to respond to an ever-changing environment. This book focuses on providing key insights into the change process by presenting a common language for organizational change, describing the multidisciplinary research base on change, and highlighting the distinct characteristics of higher education institutions and how such characteristics might influence the change process. The book also reviews models and concepts of organizational change derived within higher education, comparing and contrasting different approaches. It also provides principles for change based on a synthesis of the research within higher education. Six typologies of the change process are presented. Name and subject indexes are included.
