In addition, the book includes analysis of the underlying processes involved in the change, focusing on the change agent group's identity, its actions and relationships with stakeholders as they jointly evolved over time, and their impacts on the vitality of the change effort. Bartunek, the 2001-2002 President of the Academy of Management, has written an excellent scholarly book on organizational and educational change.
It contributes a new understanding of fundamental processes involved in organizational change, especially when viewed from the perspective of change agents.
In addition, the book provides practical implications for change agents, specifically change agents in schools.
The group's focus was on empowerment and professional development for teachers in the Network.
As such, this account will be useful for graduate students and researchers in organizational change, educational leadership, and professional development.
The book describes virtually everything that happened in the group over its first seven years and summarizes what happened during its final two years. It explores the identity, work, and evolution of change agent groups in organizations, with particular emphasis on teachers and educational change. Through the book's extensive quotations and narrative account, the reader is enabled to enter into the world of the teacher group studied over the course of its nine-year history. The Triangle Model of Change Agent Group Dynamics: Evolving Identity, Actions, and Stakeholder Relationships in a Change Agent Group Setting.


Education is open to all regardless of their ability to pay.In a recent Facebook post discussion, a Scottish friend of mine shared about the stark difference between how Scottish folks and Singaporeans view education.
They are encouraged to do a degree in subjects that interests them and that will stimulate their personal growth as an individual.To them, whether that skill is learned at university or somewhere else is another matter. Gone are the days where our education system churn out batch after batch of model Singaporean worker prototypes and direct our youths to courses to fill specific labour gaps in the market.Our education system now question the skills and competences that our youths require to adapt and succeed in this fast shifting global arena. Multiple educational pathways are now created to cater to the different strengths and interests of our students. We recognise the fact our children do not progress at the same pace when it comes to education. While we celebrate and push those who are academically inclined to go further, we must offer opportunities for late bloomers and less privileged to have a chance to catch up and compete on equal grounds at a later stage.It is also high time for us to acknowledge and accept that there are other non-degree routes to success. Just as we accord a high level of respect for MBA-armed CEOS, we should also realize that skilled technicians, highly trained mechanics, talented craftsmen, accomplished artists, or anyone who has honed his craft to an exemplary level, deserve our respect too.
For example, in the People’s Association, there is a single scheme of service, whether you are a graduate whether you are a diploma holder, you join the same scheme of service, you join at different points, but after that, your advance is based on merit and there have been many non-graduates who have progressed to senior manager positions based on their ability to do the job well.”Over at the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), it has been pushing for performance-based equal employment opportunities for over a decade. These initiatives may not be called ASPIRE, but they are definitely effort to help workers climb up the career ladder, regardless of the academic qualifications they hold.Through the years, NTUC has implemented a variety of different programs and initiatives to charge changes at the organizational level, as well as to train and better equip workers with skills so that they can have an equal share of the progression pie.
For instance, through the implementation of Skills Redevelopment Programme and Job Redesign Programme, the labour movement has reviewed and redesigned jobs and also re-skill workers so that there is improved employment opportunities for all.The Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications System (WSQ) is also worth a mention.


Almost a decade old, the WSQ unlocks avenues for workers to obtain nationally recognized and industry-relevant qualifications. This results in leveling the playing field relatively, so that even those who are not highly educated or degree holders have a chance to advance professionally.
The WSQ develops skills and education framework that are industry-specific, and focuses on the development of job-based skills and competencies. Industries that the WSQ has covered include Aerospace, Community and Social Services, Floristry, Healthcare Support, InfoCommunications Technology, Security, Marine Workplace Safety and Health, Tourism Management, etc. Employers may be pleasantly surprised by the fresh perspectives brought in by graduates who are not trained specifically in the particular field. Listen to your child and find out where his or her interest lies, they are more likely to do well in a subject they love than one which they loath.
