More About This Textbook


Change is an inevitable part of the operation of all organization. Today, it is essential for all organizations to adapt to their changing environment. To remain competitive, organizations must continuously scan their environment and look for better ways of conducting business. Organizations also need to compare their business operations with those of their leading competitor in order to identify new and simpler ways to conduct business. It is true that institutions of higher education should not differ from other businesses in the manner in which they adapt to environmental changes; however, the environmental factors that affect them should not be compared to those of other businesses. Information technology is one of the leading environmental factors that affect all industries and have played a significant role in transforming the higher education industry. The purpose of this quantitative study is to determine the impact of information technology on organizational design of the Maricopa Community College System in Maricopa County, Arizona. The simple random sampling technique was used to identify research respondents. Data was sorted and analyzed using weighted mean and analysis of variance to test hypotheses and draw relationships between the perception of the respondents on the question of organizational reengineering and organizational dimension of their academic institution when they are grouped according to job type and the college where they work.
