EDEL 741 Creating Accountability Cultures in Organizations (3)
Organizational culture and the alignment among organizational culture, mission, goals, and accountability are important in diverse communities. Theories covered relate to institutional culture, systemic planning, and organizational accountability. Project teams will undertake an organizational culture assessment of a school, department, or district to determine if the beliefs, behaviors, and assumptions required to make the vision a reality are consistent with the existing culture of the organization and align with the school's constituent community. The teams will conduct this assessment within the framework of the existing and projected demographics of the community served. Students will also examine accountability processes, metrics, and systems that measure whether the district, department, or school succeeded in accomplishing its mission. Students will examine theories and methods for the developing accountability cultures within educational institutions.
