Part I of the report describes the setting or environment of the Institute, the participants, objectives, findings, conclusions, and recommendations. In Part II, the design and models used in implementing and evaluating the Institute are discussed and analyzed. The training model "Learning by Objectives" is presented as a flow-chart and discussed. The development of a model "An Approach to Decision-Making" is described. The data collected in measuring the objectives and in analyzing related aspects are discussed in Part III of the report.
