Applying Frames

I need an explanation for this Management question to help me study.

Application of Frames

To help you identify your initial insights, feelings, and preferences regarding organizations and change, review the four frames created by each team in the previous I’ve Been Framed assignment and weave your responses to any two of the following questions into a post of a few paragraphs in length:

  • In your experience, which frame or frames do you encounter most frequently in schools and school districts? (If you are not currently working in a school, substitute your workplace.) Why do you think this is the case?
  • Is there a frame that should dominate American schools, or do schools function optimally when frames are more balanced? Explain.
  • Lastly, is Bolman and Deal’s (2017) framing concept limited because it oversimplifies matters, or is it a helpful tool for understanding leadership and organizations? Briefly support your answer.

Support your statements with evidence from the required studies and your research. Cite and reference your sources in APA style.
