A Lesson of Lost Political Capital in Public Higher Education: Leadership Challenges in a Time of Needed Organizational Change
Hilton, Mark; Jacobson, Rod
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v5 n3 p227-232 2012

Here is a management-centered analysis of what happened when a college president, recognizing the need to make a radical adaptation to those changes, tried moving a campus community to a new organizational model, without collegial consensus, and too quickly. The result was that the president lost political capital and the college underwent a change in leadership. Yet the need for a new management model still remains. [A bibliography is included.]
