Abstract

Vision plays an important role in leadership and strategic planning for all organizations including education. In this regards planning vision is the management’s key task and responsibility. In managing the change process, working on vision not only means examining and re-examining the strategic planning for the organization but also making explicit to management the purpose for the change. Consequently, the importance of the vision and planning would be more critical when an organization is going through the new technology-based changes. This paper which is the result of a PhD research study focuses on “vision “as one of the main component of change management. Therefore, in order to see the different aspect of visionary planning in situation of educational change, four main strategies of management including planning, organizing, guiding, and monitoring have been examined. From the data analysis it was found that in the context of technology-based change or systemic change that affects all the levels and aspects of the organization, vision and strategic planning play as the two key prerequisites for the success of the change. The results of in-depth analysis of “vision” as the key theme of this study are presented in this paper.
