Maintaining Effectiveness Amid Downsizing and Decline in Institutions of Higher Education.
Smart, John; Cameron, Kim
Research in Higher Education, v39 n1 p65-86 Feb 1998
A study of 334 colleges and universities found institutions with declining resources are as effective as institutions with abundant resources. However, institutions that develop certain attributes (centralization, crisis mentality, lowered innovation, resistance to change, decreasing morale, politicized interest groups, non-prioritized cutbacks, loss of trust, increasing conflict, restricted communication, lack of teamwork, scapegoating leaders) perform less effectively.
