The Vroom and Yetton Normative Leadership Model Applied to Public School Case Examples.
This paper seeks to familiarize school administrators with the Vroom and Yetton Normative Leadership model by presenting its essential components and providing original case studies for its application to school settings. The five decision-making methods of the Vroom and Yetton model, including two "autocratic," two "consultative," and one group method, are introduced. Before being provided further information about the model, readers are invited to select which of the five methods applies most appropriately to each of four cases that requires administrative-level decisions in public schools. Lists of problem attributes and diagnostic questions given by Vroom and Yetton are provided, as well as their seven rules for decision-making and their model decision tree. Finding that school administrators often have difficulty with the issues of the quality of decisions and the structure of decision-making, the author emphasizes those problem attributes in applying the model's decision-making rules. The paper concludes with Vroom and Yetton's design for decision-making training. (JW)
