Feasibility Study for a Center for the Analysis of Management in Government. Final Report.
Foote, Merrill J.
This study was designed to discover whether a university or a group of universities in the Southwest should establish a teaching and research center concerned with governmental management. The study focused on: (1) means for solving problems of federal officials at the regional level; (2) possible and feasible activities of Southern Methodist University; and (3) possible establishment of a teaching and research center located in the Dallas area. The study examines the need for the center and the difficulties of establishing one, and discusses the 3 basic requirements for the center's success. They are: (1) existence of an important and unique rationale; (2) strong support and substantial funds from the region's leaders; and (3) an effective organizational design. It describes the resources available at SMU and relevant resources available in the Southwest region, and concludes that a center at SMU is not practical at this time, but that the University could take steps which would facilitate governmental management. The possibility of establishing a center elsewhere in the Dallas area was not excluded. (AF)
