Readiness for Change in Public Education: A Discrete Empirical Investigation
Khedhiri, Mohamed
Higher Education for the Future, v5 n2 p178-197 Jul 2018
A bulk of research on organizational readiness for changes has been focused on continuous empirical analysis in private business organizations. The present study digresses from the status quo by performing discrete analysis in public education. Generalized ordered logit model (GOLM) regressions were performed at individual level, to analyse a sample of 707 faculties working in a large public university who were in the process to undergo substantial change. Results showed that faculty perceives, indeed, critical issues related to demotivation, communication channel, nature of teamwork and transformational leaders (TFL). These issues let them support the need for organizational change to be successful in the near future. In addition, data analysis raised issues concerning TFL's social interaction patterns. This and other overwhelming challenges are discussed, and some recommendations of understanding change readiness and TFL development are suggested.
