Project Management in a Local School District.
Cummings, C. Peter
This paper embodies three presentations given at a panel discussion on organizing, planning, and managing the local school district. The first presentation on comprehensive planning for change draws a distinction between "a priori" and "a posteriori" planning and relates these two types of planning in coping with school district problems. The next presentation deals with the critical factors required to implement project management capability in a school district, and examines the advantages and limitations of project management and the uses of project management in a public relations function. The final presentation emphasizes the kinds of information needed to support organizational modification in a local school district. One important consideration is the premise that major change in school districts must be supported by an organizational structure that facilitates the communication flows and the human interactions necessary to implement change.
