Enhancing Campus Capacity for Leadership contributes to the growing tradition of giving voice to grassroots leaders, focusing on the largely untapped potential of faculty and staff on college campuses. In an increasingly corporatized environment, grassroots leadership can provide a balance to the prestige- and revenue-seeking impulses of traditional campus leaders, create changes in the teaching and learning core, build greater equity, improve relationships among campus stakeholders, and enhance the student experience. This book documents the stories of grassroots leaders, including their motivation and background, the tactics and strategies that they use, the obstacles that they overcome, and the ways that they navigate power and join with formal authority. This investigation also highlights the fact that grassroots leaders, particularly in more marginalized groups, can face significant backlash. The authors end with a discussion of the future of leadership on college campuses, examining the possibilities for shared and collaborative forms of guidance and governance.

Colleges and universities are best understood as networks of departments working together to fulfill a mission of education, innovation, and community partnership. To better understand how these large and complex institutions function, scholars can apply organizational and strategic planning concepts made familiar by business management. This book follows that model and explores the new and emerging ways by which organizational theories address major contemporary concerns in higher education. The contributors to this volume are both influenced and inspired by the pioneering work of Marvin Peterson and his four-decade career researching higher education organization. Comprising a serious reexamination of the field, the essays review past and current thinking, address the field’s core theoretical traditions, and pursue exciting new lines of inquiry, including the organizational dynamics of diversity and social movement organizations. Ideal for courses in administration and theory, this book reinvigorates the study of higher education as an organization and encourages scholars to rediscover the value of organizational principles in all areas of higher education research.

This volume provides a critical examination of the status of women and gender in higher education today. Despite the increasing numbers of women in higher education, gendered structures continue to hinder women’s advancement in academia. This book goes beyond the numbers to examine the issues facing those members of academia with non-dominant gender identities. The authors analyze higher education structures from a range of perspectives and offer recommendations at individual and institutional levels to encourage activism and advance equality in academia.

The case for a flexible work schedule for faculty has beenrepeatedly made, with one policy recommendation being part-timepositions for tenure-track/tenured faculty (PTTT). Despite some ofthe benefits of this approach for both faculty and institutions,the PTTT concept is the least implemented policy for facultyflexibility and is poorly understood. This report offers the firstcomprehensive treatment of PTTT, suggesting that this mode offlexibility enhances recruitment, retention, and engagement offaculty, while offering value-added productivity, planningpotential, and faculty loyalty for the institution. Herbers provides data that explore how a PTTT policy can lead tofaculty success and satisfaction across the lifespan of a career,and likewise offers analogies and examples of well-establishedpractices that administrators across institution types can adapt tocreate their own policies. Administrators and faculty will find theauthor’s policy recommendations, best practices, andsolutions to common challenges to be a roadmap for stimulatingchange in their institutions. This is the 5th issue of the 40th volume of the Jossey-Bass seriesASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitiveanalysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thoroughresearch of pertinent literature and institutional experiences.Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners andscholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with expertsproviding critical reviews of each manuscript beforepublication.

Komplexität, Beschleunigung, Dynamik - die Wirtschaft brodelt und kocht. Führung gleicht einem Tanz auf dem Vulkan, und immer mehr Manager müssen eine Flut von Informationen in neue Klarheit überführen. Genau hier setzen Don Beck und Christopher C. Cowan mit ihrem Modell von Spiral Dynamics an. Als Weiterentwicklung des Konzepts biopsychosozialer Systeme von Clare W. Graves, das vom kanadischen Magazin Maclean's als "die Theorie, die alles erklärt" bezeichnet wurde, setzt Spiral Dynamics neue Maßstäbe für das Verständnis komplexer Systeme. Auf der Basis so genannter Werte-Meme (WMeme), die Lebensstile, Glaubensmuster und Einstellungen hervorbringen, entwickeln die Autoren eine Methode, mit der sich Unternehmen, Individuen und wirtschaftliche Entwicklungen analysieren, bewerten und transformieren lassen. Spiral Dynamics eröffnet einen völlig neuen Zugang zu Nachhaltigkeit, Diversity-Management und Leadership, denn Motivationsanreize oder ethische Richtlinien "funktionieren" nur, wenn sie die aktuelle Entwicklungsebene der Adressaten ansprechen.

Change in der Krise kann jeder - das ist keine Management-Kunst. Doch wie bekommen Sie Ihre Mannschaft bewegt, wenn der Veränderungsdruck noch nicht in den Quartalszahlen spürbar ist? Change-Prozesse gestalten heißt: das Spiel kontrollieren. Für derartige Prozesse in Unternehmen, die kein Sanierungsfall sind, sind völlig andere Kompetenzen gefragt als beim klassischen Restrukturierungsmanagement. Genau hier setzen Stefan Iskan und Erwin Staudt mit ihrem Autorenteam an. Sie verdeutlichen, dass in Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft ein völlig anderes Verständnis von Change Management benötigt wird. Und zwar eines, das - jenseits von Krisen- und Turnaround- Management - dem bewussten und strategischen Wandel nahekommt und Veränderungsbereitschaft als neuen kritischen Erfolgsfaktor, ja sogar neuen Input-Faktor, in den Unternehmen betrachtet. „Dieses Buch ist nichts für Manager, die in kleinen Schritten arbeiten. Die Herausgeber und ihr Autorenteam beweisen Mut, indem sie das „Change Desaster“ in Unternehmen ungeschönt beim Namen nennen und ungemütliche Fragen aufwerfen. Die Autoren wissen, wovon sie sprechen. Und das zeigen sie hier mit großer Leidenschaft.“ Thomas Blank, Chief Executive Officer Area Central Europe bei Agility & Member of the European Management Board
