Managing School Identities By Understanding Organizational Culture by Katarzyna Baliga

This workshop perceives schools as communities that should respond to global changes by analysing and managing their systems of values and beliefs.

The concept of organizational culture has been selected and studied because it is a powerful idea that runs on a deepest level of human interaction. Some refer to organizational culture as collective programming of the minds of individuals that distinguishes one organization from the other.

The workshop covers some theoretical frameworks, but all the knowledge is acquired through an interactive and collaborative process. The ambition of this workshop is to create a learning environment open for discussion and innovation that hopefully will lead to some sustainable transformation.
