摘要:基金会在美国的K-12教育系统改革中起到了越来越重要的作用。李莎博士将分享在基金会引导的教育改革中,学区是怎样执行这些改革的。她认为基金会引导的教育改革有别于传统的美国教育改革,区别在于前者兼具从上而下的改革和从下而上的改革的特点。因此,基金会引导的教育改革需要一种新的执行模式,从而要求学区建立一种新的组织能力,她将这种新的能力称为“组织可塑性”。组织可塑性指的是组织在外部环境的压力下延展的能力。为了能延展,组织需要建立组织支架结构。演讲人将介绍一组对比学习案例来阐述怎样建立这种组织能力,她认为组织可塑性可以调解组织进化理论和组织学习理论之间的矛盾。

Philanthropic organizations are playing an ever-increasing role in K-12 education reforms in the USA. As such, my talk focuses on understanding how school districts implement foundation-led K-12 reforms. I argue that contemporary foundation-led reforms differ from traditional reforms in that they are partly both top-down and bottom up. Hence, understanding contemporary foundation-led reforms requires a new notion of implementation, one that requires school districts to build a new organizational capability. I develop a theoretical framework for this new capability, and I call this new capability “organizational plasticity”. Organizational plasticity refers to the capability of an organization to “stretch” without breaking under external pressure. I argue that in order for organizations to stretch, they need to build what I call “scaffolding structures.” By focusing on scaffolding structures and how they help organizations build new routines, I take a first step in reconciling a theoretical tension between evolutionary theory and organizational learning theory.
