Planning and Managing Projects in School Districts.
Thompson, G. Baker
This study considered the feasibility of alternative methods for managing various school district projects. Several versions of project management were identified and studied, but only two of the more flexible systems were selected for their potential contribution to educational administration. Ten New Jersey administrators were trained by a management consultant firm to determine which problems seemed more relevant to project management techniques. During the study period of almost a year, the presentation was changed according to feedback received from the field. Another project management approach was used in a 2-day training seminar for administrators from several Pennsylvania school districts. The overall findings of this study suggest that project management techniques are applicable to special types of situations and for selected problems. The training will continue to be modified as field staff observe resulting changes in school district management techniques. A related document is EA 002 949. (Author)
