This presentation will first describe the theoretical framework for culture change and the factors that influence it, particularly planning and assessment. Institutional culture is a pattern of shared assumptions, beliefs, values and behaviors that members have about their organization and its work. This culture is taught to new members of the organization as the correct way to think and behave. When institutions implement strategies to change what members think and value, the culture can be changed.

  • Describe how a learning organization uses planning and assessment for improvement and to demonstrate effectiveness.
  • Evaluate the role that planning and assessment played in changing dental school cultures in four case studies.
  • Explain institutional culture and how to change it.
