Ecosystems and Villages: Using Transformational Metaphors To Build Community in Higher Education Institutions.
Illes, Louise M.
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, v21 n1 p57-69 May 1999
The use of metaphors to reshape both the perceptions and the climate of organizations is applied to the college/university context (e.g., the university as ecosystem, village, neighborhood). Organizational metaphor can be used in place of more formal, predictable management strategies to make organizational change more appealing to a diverse group of constituents. (MSE)
