Making the Case for a Positive Approach to Improving Organizational Performance in Higher Education Institutions: The Community College Abundance Model
Shults, Christopher
Community College Review, v36 n2 p133-159 2008
Increasingly hostile and turbulent environments have rendered top-down, problem-focused management structures inadequate for competing in the ever-changing postsecondary knowledge industry. The community college abundance model (CCAM), a strengths-based approach to performance enhancement in community colleges, is presented as a viable alternative. The CCAM draws on positive psychology, positive organizational scholarship, and positive organizational behavior. (Contains 2 figures and 2 notes.)
