Metaphorical Images of an Organization: The Power of Symbolic Constructs in Reading Change in Higher Education Organizations.
Simsek, Hasan
Higher Education, v33 n3 p283-307 Apr 1997
Interviews with 24 faculty in a large public university investigated use of metaphors to analyze change in higher education organizations. Results indicate that strategic choices guiding the behavior of the organization and metaphorical images held by faculty about the organization show a high degree of congruence. Implications for change and maintenance of enacted realities in higher education organizations are discussed. (Author/MSE)
