Organizational vision: The other side of the coin.

Ronit Bogler, Adam E. Nir

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Vision is the essence of leadership that brings about change in the life of organizations. The present paper argues that three critical components, the qualities of an organization’s leader, the attributes of the followers and the nature of the environment must be taken into consideration by the leader in articulating an organizational vision. The paper offers a classification of organizational visions and discusses some likely consequences of disregarding them. Some examples are drawn from educational settings. Implications and conclusions about the gains and losses that leaders with different operational orientations may face when articulating a vision are also discussed.
