Rational, Learning, and Institutionalized Organization
This chapter introduces three different models that help in the study of evaluation from the viewpoint of organizational theory. These three models are the institutionalized organization, the rational organization, and the learning organization. The institutionalized organization provides important contrast to the ideals of the rational and learning organizations, while the rational organization gives a primary ideal for the very occurrence of organization within today's society. Finally, learning organization zeroes in on the ideal that most evaluators share.
