Postindustrial Environments and Organizational Effectiveness in Colleges and Universities.
Cameron, Kim S.; Tschirhart, Mary
Journal of Higher Education, v63 n1 p87-108 Jan-Feb 1992
This survey of 331 institutions of higher education found that attributes of the postindustrial environment--scarcity of resources, competitiveness, and turbulence--are negatively associated with the effectiveness of four-year colleges and universities. Participative decision making, domain offense strategies, and political decision processes appear to mitigate most strongly the environmental effects. (Author/DB)
