By examining a school culture, these leaders will be better equipped to shape the values and attitudes necessary to support improvements in their learning environment.

Select an educational environment within PreK–12, higher education, or corporate training. Your team has already completed an external scan; internal scan; strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats analysis (SWOT or SWOC); and a strategic plan. These completed steps have indicated a need for cultural change as a part of the institution’s organizational development.
Your group is to describe the existing culture of an institution and any problems within the institution caused by its culture. Select one the following change agent models to create an intervention that will effectively shape the values and attitudes of those professionals within the institution to better meet the needs of the institution and connect with its strategic plan:
- Hall & Hord (1987) – concerns-based adoption model (CBAM)
- Zaltman & Duncan (1977) – strategies for planned change
- Reigeluth & Garfinkle (1994) – systemic change in education
- Fullan & Stieglebauer (1991) – the change agent
- Havelock & Zlotolow (1995) – the change agent’s guide
- Ely (1990) – the change environment
