Exploring the Relationship between Organizational Virtuousness and Culture in Continuing Higher Education
Vallett, Carol M.
Journal of Continuing Higher Education, v58 n3 p130-142 2010
In recent years, positive organizational behavior and scholarship has emerged as a new lens for organizational analysis. The construct of organizational virtuousness, a part of positive organizational scholarship, has been examined in for-profit entities and was found to be positively linked with organizational outcomes. This case study sought to determine if organizational virtuousness was a useful construct for continuing higher education units and also to examine any relationships between organizational culture and organizational virtuousness. A quantitative case study of two university continuing education units indicates that organizational virtuousness is a useful construct for continuing education organizational analysis and is also related to organizational culture. Implications for continuing education leaders are included as well as suggestions for fostering organizational virtuousness in their organizations. (Contains 4 tables.)
