TYPES OF ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE IN POLISH SCHOOLS BASED ON THE TYPOLOGY OF CH. HANDY

A. Hesse-Gawęda

Jagiellonian University (POLAND)
Each school is characterized by a specific organizational culture. It deals with activities in the context of decisions taken and values, beliefs and ideologies held. Often, the type of organizational culture depends on the knowledge that its members have. The specificity of creating a culture prevailing in a particular school may be related to the awareness of norms and patterns represented by the director, who is responsible for the functioning of the institution. The role of the educational leader is very important. According to G. Avery (2009), it is essential that the system of organization is consistent. This affects the standardization of behaviors that increase the predictability of actions taken. It should be remembered that culture created in an intuitive and unpredictable way may pose a threat to the proper functioning of the school organization.

The article presents the results of research on the types of organizational culture prevailing in Polish schools of various types and their impact on activities undertaken at the facility. The author presents four types of culture proposed by Ch. Handy. The first one is focused on the authority of the director. The second concerns jointly achieved goals. The next one focuses on the role played by individual members in creating the culture of the organization. The last type focuses on the human being, where profit and competition are excluded.
