Statement of problem: Many of the Macedonian educational institutions are based on the traditional approach of management and therefore the need and necessity of reorganization / reengineering work is necessary as well. In terms of free and open market economy the problem of requiring management teams is increasingly present, especially in countries of transition. This paper surveys the Macedonian educational institutions in terms of building a working atmosphere, creating management teams, improving business processes, fostering innovation and certain conclusions that are to be based upon them.
Methods: The data received from the research are processed with adequate mathematical-statistical methods. Pareto analysis was used for frequency as well as for analysis in order to calculate the involvement of certain answers in percentages.
Results: The survey is stating the fact of malfunctioning of the teams in the surveyed institutions, issues with the Macedonian mentality that appears as emphasized individualism, the issue of demarcation between old habits and participation in solving problems as well as the improvements of the innovations.
Conclusions: Barriers in the work of management teams are different from team to team, but the barrier is a crucial psychological moment, which can be linked to misconduct of the following: cooperation, work motivation or vanity. Furthermore, it can also be linked to an inadequate financial support, lack of interest for continuous learning and improvement or inadequate program for training. Hence, the conclusion that a successful operation of the company is only possible with well-functioning management teams, good cooperation with employees, having clear standards of reward and punishment, clear and precise instructions to the employees follow inevitably, and it is only possible with the existence of managers who develop TQM (Total Quality Management) strategy. However, the most important aspect in developing the new TQM philosophy is based on the learning organization approach.
Key words: learning organization, innovation, management teams, reorganization, reengineering and TQM strategy.
