Abstract

The main purpose of the paper is to investigate the relationships among organizational culture, strategies of Phase II of the Technological and Vocational Education (TVE) Reform Project and competitive advantage of TVE Institutions in Taiwan. In order to achieve the objectives, the subjects of this paper were TVE Institutions that carried out the TVE Reform Project for phase II. Research methods of this paper included literary analysis, focus group interview, and questionnaire survey. The information obtained by the questionnaires had been analyzed by Hierarchical Linear Modeling (HLM). The results were discussed to analyze the relationship between strategies of Phase II of the TVE Reform Project and competitive advantage of TVE Institutions. Furthermore, the moderating effect of organizational culture was tested. The paper constructed the relationships among organizational culture, strategies of Phase II of the TVE Reform Project and competitive advantage of TVE Institutions for hierarchical linear model. The positive influences between variables of strategies of Phase II of the TVE Reform Project and competitive advantage were supported. The positive influences between variables of organizational culture and competitive advantage were supported, too. However, the moderating effect of organizational culture was not supported. Finally, according to the results of empirical study, the suggestions for strategies of the technological and vocational education and future research were proposed.
