School Development Planning in Jersey Primary Schools: A Contingency Analysis.
Jones, Gary Richard
School Organisation, v16 n3 p281-95 Oct 1996
Examines management of planned change. Considers how a continually shifting balance between environmental turbulence and stability affects implementation of annual school-development plans. Tests Wallace and McMahon's contingency hypothesis: turbulent environments demand a continual process of creation, monitoring, and adjustment. Stable environments may allow a more systematic, cyclic planning approach. Headteachers should use both approaches. (25 references) (MLH)
