"The most contaminated nuclear weapons plant in the country, Rocky Flats was an environmental disaster and the site of rampant worker unrest. Although estimates projected that cleaning up and closing the facility would take 70 years and $36 billion, the project was completed 60 years ahead of schedule and $30 billion under budget, and most of the site is now on its way to becoming a wildlife refuge.

Authors Cameron and Quinn focus on the methods and mechanisms that are available to help managers and change agents transform the most fundamental elements of their organizations. The authors also provide instruments to help individuals guide the change process at the most basic level - culture. Diagnosing and Changing Organizational Culture offers a systematic strategy for internal or external change agents to facilitate foundational change that in turn makes it possible to support and supplement other kinds of change initiatives."--Jacket

"Creating value in a firm is an enormously complex endeavor. Yet, despite its complexity, value creation is the objective of every enterprise, every worker, and every leader. The Competing Values Framework can help leaders understand more deeply and act more effectively. In the first book to comprehensively present this framework, the authors discuss its core elements and focus attention on rethinking the notion of value. They emphasize specific tools and techniques leaders can use to institute sustainable change." "This accessible resource will be of great use to organizational scholars interested in the concepts of value creation, organizational effectiveness, and competing values; to leaders and managers interested in enhancing and creating value in their organizations; and to change agents and consultants who use the Competing Values Framework as part of their intervention strategies or who are looking to help improve organizations."--Jacket

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Positive Leadership shows how to reach beyond ordinary success to achieve extraordinary effectiveness, spectacular results, and what Kim Cameron calls "positively deviant performance"-performance far above the norm. Citing a wide range of research in organizational development and psychology as well as real-world examples, Cameron shows that to go from successful to exceptional, leaders must learn how to create a profoundly positive environment in the workplace.

Case studies in college strategy by Ellen Earle Chaffee( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strategies employed by selected, pseudonymous private colleges in dealing with revenue constraints are detailed in case studies. Attention is directed to the adaptation and policies of eleven private liberal arts and three comprehensive colleges in their efforts to recover from rapid decline in total revenues during 1973-1976. Intensive analysis is provided for these 14 colleges that enrolled at least 650 students in 1979. Half had made the greatest total revenue recovery and half had continued to decline. Chief administrators and faculty leaders were interviewed on each campus, along with at least one trustee on most campuses. Background materials, such as accreditation self-study reports, internal reports, historical documents, college catalogs, and audit reports were also examined. In addition, five pilot schools were studied to test the feasibility of a large-sample mailed survey. Descriptive information on each college is included along with the case history, which covers enrollments, staff, academic programs, planning, budgets and capital. The colleges are not identified by name: nine were church-related; three were selective in admissions; and two were urban, three were rural, and nine were in intermediate-sized towns. The field interview guide is included. (Sw)
The aftermath of decline by Kim S Cameron( Book )

6 editions published between 1983 and 1988 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Differences between declining colleges and colleges not experiencing decline were investigated, along with dysfunctional organizational consequences that may be associated with decline. Attention is directed to 12 negative attributes resulting from conditions of decline, seven of which were found to be significant: no innovation, scapegoating, resistance to change, low morale, no credibility, non-selective cuts, and conflict. The sample of 334 colleges was made up of 127 public and 207 private institutions, of which 180 were small, 120 were medium, and 34 were large. Of the colleges, 20% had experienced declining enrollments during the last 5 years, 42% had greater than 5% growth, and 38% were stable between plus and minus 5%. Questionnaires were completed by 3,406 respondents (department heads, administrators, and trustees). Schools were categorized as declining based on: (1) reported decline with 100% agreement among respondents; (2) actual data indicating declines in enrollments and revenues (adjusted for inflation) between 1977 and 1981; and (3) findings that there were more years of decline than of growth during the period and that the overall change was negative. Multivariate analyses of covariance were used to compare declining and stable institutions on the 12 attributes, using the three definitions of decline. (Sw)
Desarrollo de habilidades directivas by David A Whetten( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Desarrollo de habilidades directivas es una obra escrita para ayudar al lector a mejorar sus competencias personales administrativas y a cambiar su comportamiento. Este no es un libro de texto típico sobre administración y en ello radica su éxito. La exposición de los temas se basa en un modelo de cinco pasos: evaluación, aprendizaje, análisis, práctica y aplicación de habilidades. El lector conocerá investigaciones informativas sobre el efecto que tienen los actos de los directivos en el desempeño individual y organizacional, así como las características de los directivos eficaces. El enfoque de esta obra se centra en desarrollar las habilidades directivas del estudiante, y no en describir las estrategias, las herramientas, las técnicas o los estilos de administración. Este libro se concentra en las habilidades que la investigación ha identificado como aspectos de importancia fundamental para el éxito en la administración y el liderazgo. La parte I incluye tres capítulos acerca de las habilidades personales: desarrollo de autoconocimiento, manejo de estrés personal, y solución analítica y creativa de problemas. Estas habilidades se concentran en asuntos que quizás no impliquen a otras personas, sino que se relacionan con el manejo del propio yo, de ahí que las llamemos habilidades personales. Cada capítulo, sin embargo, incluye en realidad un grupo de comportamientos relacionados, no solamente una simple habilidad. La parte II se refiere a las habilidades interpersonales: establecimiento de relaciones mediante una comunicación de apoyo, ganar poder e influencia, motivar a los demás, y manejo de conflictos. Estas habilidades se centran principalmente en asuntos que surgen al interactuar con otras personas. La parte III incluye tres capítulos acerca de habilidades grupales: facultamiento y delegación, formación de equipos efectivos y trabajo en equipo, y liderar el cambio positivo. Estas habilidades se centran en asuntos fundamentales que surgen cuando se participa con grupos de personas, ya sea como líder o como miembro del grupo. Al igual que ocurre con todas las habilidades que se estudian en el libro, existe una superposición entre las habilidades grupales, y entre éstas y las habilidades personales e interpersonales. Además de las 10 habilidades directivas fundamentales de las partes I, II y III, los capítulos complementarios de la parte IV introducen tres habilidades adicionales de comunicación: elaboración de presentaciones orales y escritas; realización de entrevistas y conducción de reuniones de trabajo. Estos complementos cubren habilidades de comunicación especializadas que son muy importantes para los alumnos que han tenido poca experiencia administrativa o escasa capacitación en habilidades
