Why Committees Don't Work: Creating a Structure for Change.
Tierney, William G.
Academe, v87 n3 p25-29 May-Jun 2001
Asserting that college reforms usually fail for structural reasons, outlines some barriers to change and offers suggestions to overcoming them. Barriers include: people cannot agree on the problem to be solved, time frames and structures are not clear, and there are no evaluative criteria. Strategies include: define roles and time frames, seek comparative data, and ensure good communications. (EV)
