ABSTRACT

Performance management is a key indicator of success or failure of international public and private organizations. The purpose of this research is to identify a causal relationship among change management, strategic planning, visionary leadership and performance management of a sect of Buddhist schools, called Pariyatti Dhamma, in the kingdom of Thailand. Structural equation modelling (SEM) was used to analyze data collected from 550 teachers and staff working in these schools. It was found that all the variables have both a direct and indirect causal relationship. It was also found that the structural equation model fits with the empirical data.
