Abstract:
ABSTRACT The purpose of this study was to investigate the Organisational Development (OD) interventions that influence organisational culture in order to improve performance of the organisation (school). The study was conducted in the Warren Park- Mabelreign District of Harare, Zimbabwe. A number of authorities have researched and written on Organisational Development Interventions and Organisational Culture. In this study Fifty (50) teachers and Eighteen (18) Administrators (Heads) were used as research subjects. Two separate questionnaires were used as the research instruments. Statistical analysis methods were used to present and interpret data. The main findings of the study were: Teachers were relatively younger than Heads. Female teachers and male Heads dominated the schools. Heads were more mature, senior and experienced than teachers. Teachers and Heads have agreed that demographic factors have a bearing on organisational culture. The study recommended that staff development programmes on organisational development (OD) should be increased. The Organisational Development (OD) Interventions would assist the schools to change the prevailing organisational culture hence improving performance in schools. The study also recommended that the Ministry of Education needed to introduce the concept of Organisational Development (OD) in schools in order to benefit from the interventions. There was also need to introduce the concept of OD at all levels in tertiary education. Keywords: - Organisational Development, Organisational Culture, Performance, School
