A Training Program for Educational Management Tools. Final Report.
Bliss, Sam W.
Educational personnel having major responsibilities for research and development were invited to attend three one-week institutes to receive training in the use of selected management tools. instructional topics such as systems and management analysis, and definitive studies of management information systems (MIS), program planning budgetary systems (PPBS), and program evaluation review techniques (PERT) were selected as useful to administative personnel in planning, decision making, and evaluation. The major objective of the training program was to instill in the attendants knowledge and skills necessary for the application of these tools in the daily operation of project and school system management. Most participants rated the program as good or excellent in overall effectiveness. A followup survey of selected participants indicated that knowledge and skills acquired in the institutes were being used in the home organizations. (Author/RA)
