Policymakers and educators increasingly recognize that the knowledge, skills, and training teachers need to meet the needs of students are missing in many of the nation's schools. At the same time, voices from within and outside of education are lauding the private sector's successes in supporting effective professional development. However, while successful private sector professional development activities may in fact look similar to those in education, the organizational culture in which these activities occur is often quite different. This dissertation examines the extent to which exemplary practices in the public education sector and in the private sector is the result of strong organizational leadership and institutional support for continuing education. Utilizing a combination of case study research and comparative analysis, this study uncovers both similarities and differences in how decisions are made, how resources are allocated, how organizational cultures change, and what incentives are in place to support the transformation and successful implementation of professional development in the public education sector and in the private sector. The study findings are intended to add to the knowledge base around teacher professional development in at least two ways: (1) provide data on the relevance of the private sector experience for education, and (2) increase our understanding of how organizations support or fail to support a work culture that values ongoing education
