Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of the study was to determine if a model could be created which would describe and prescribe a superior method for strategic problem solving in the community college. A review of the literature in business and industry was used to extrapolate a model which might describe the decision making process. The hypothesized model was used to analyze the problem solving process in two case studies at two Oregon community colleges. The case studies dealt with the problem of creating a marketing approach for each college and in working through the budget creation process. Though the model derived from business and industry proved adequate in describing the process, it did not give a complete picture of where the process failed, nor did it suggest how the process could be strengthened. Socioscientific literature was examined and certain additional steps were included in a new model. A second model was then hypothesized combining the best aspects found in the business and socioscientific literature. This new model was examined using the case studies of the institutions and proved superior to the business/industrial model. The dissertation pinpoints where the process broke down or failed. The evidence suggests that the model can be used beneficially for strategic problem solving.
