The aim of this study is to determine the level of relationship between the form of culturation in educational institutions and the management practices in these institutions. Education is service sector. In the information age, the service sector is affected by factors such as global competition, new service delivery techniques and information technologies. The success of educational institutions in this process depends on management practices. An effective management practice in organizations is related to the cultural structure of that organization. In the literature review, researches on the concept of management practices, which are extremely important for organizations, have generally been applied at the enterprise level, and there has not been a sufficient study in the field of education. The sample of the research; It consists of 389 teachers of 8 high schools in Ankara Yenimahalle district. Wallach's (1983) "Type of organizational culture" scale, translated into Turkish by Yahyagil (2004), to collect data in the study and "Management Practices Scale" developed by Yukl, Gordon & Taber (2002) was used for management practices. Exploratory factor analysis to determine the relationships between organizational culture types and management practices and correlation analysis was performed to determine the association between variables. Multiple linear regression model between management practices and bureaucratic, innovative and supportive organizational culture was found to be significant (F = 55.925; p <0.001). While bureaucratic organization culture type has a negative effect on management practices, it has been determined that supportive and inovative organizational culture types positively affect management practices.
