Internalizing Change Capacity in Secondary Schools through Organizational Change.
Hannay, Lynne M.; Ross, John A.
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v47 n4 p325-40 Win 2001
A 4-year study of 9 Ontario secondary schools examined their capacity for change. Change capacity consisted of liberation from structures that inhibit innovation, honoring cognitive dissonance, and forging new relationships. Imposing new organizational structures was less likely to perpetuate change capacity than was a commitment improvement approach that engages the participants. (Contains 54 references.) (Author/TD)
