The Self-Aware Organization: A Metacognitive Approach to Change Management in a Small Rural School District
Harrison, Charles E., Jr.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Phoenix
Educational leaders have often been ineffective in managing change in their environment. Change vectors were used in the current study to identify areas of needed change, along with a metacognitive approach to organizational change. A qualitative case study was employed to explore the use of such a metacognitive approach to change by a small rural school district. The present study's participants, consisting of the superintendent, two principals, and the after-school program director, were able to use change vectors quickly to identify areas of needed change, and to create a comprehensive structure for managing their change efforts.
