The Predictors of Organizational Effectiveness as Perceived by Nurses in Affiliated Hospitals of Kunming Medical University, the People’s Republic of China
Keywords:Organizational effectiveness, Organizational culture, Transformational leadership, Nurse
This predictive research aims to examine the predictors of organizational effectiveness as perceived by nurses in affiliated hospitals of Kunming Medical University, the People’s Republic of China. The participants included 410 nurses. The research instruments were composed of the Leadership Practices Inventory, the Organizational Culture Profile, and the Organizational Effectiveness Questionnaire. The Cronbach’s alpha coefficients of these instruments were .97, .96, and .94, respectively. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and binary logistic regression analysis.
The results revealed that nurses perceived organizational effectiveness at a moderate level. Transformational leadership (OR = 1.82, 95% CI = 1.22-2.73), and three components of organizational culture including performance orientation (OR = 4.09, 95% CI = 1.81-9.22), innovation (OR = 2.10, 95% CI = 1.06-4.15), and stability (OR = 2.23, 95% CI = 1.23-4.04) could explain 39.00% of variability in organizational effectiveness (Nagelkerke R2 = .39). The results of this study provide basic information for improving organizational effectiveness by developing head nurse’s transformational leadership and organizational culture.
