Overcoming the Problem of Embedding Change in Educational Organizations: A Perspective from Normalization Process Theory
Wood, Phil
Management in Education, v31 n1 p33-38 Jan 2017
In this article, I begin by outlining some of the barriers which constrain sustainable organizational change in schools and universities. I then go on to introduce a theory which has already started to help explain complex change and innovation processes in health and care contexts, Normalization Process Theory. Finally, I consider what this theory might offer in practical terms to aid organizations and leaders in bringing about more sustainable and positive change in educational contexts.
