Dynamics of Management by Objectives for School Administrators. A System of Participative Management Whereby Management Personnel in an Organization Identify Major Areas of Responsibility, Set Standards for Performance, and Measure the Results Against Those Standards.
Mansergh, Gerald G., Ed.
Management by objectives, a systems approach to managerial leadership, can be of substantial benefit to organizations because it helps solve key problems in organizational administration. As a system, it (1) defines what is expected by specifying objectives, (2) elicits teamwork by identifying common goals, (3) programs work by setting terminal dates for tasks, (4) recognizes progress by measuring accomplishments, (5) administers salaries by measuring merit and performance, and (6) assesses promotability by identifying leadership potential and performance.
