This report constitutes an evaluation of the first year of a 2-year training program conducted by the American Management Association. The program focuses on organizational planning in two State educational agencies and involves the sequential implementation of three distinct, offsite, residential training efforts. The first of these, the Management Course for Presidents (MCP), was attended by the State Superintendent. The second program, Top Management Briefing (TMB), was administered to the top 24 administrators from the State agency and the 24 top administrators from pilot, local education agencies. The third program, the Educational Planning Process, was administered to organizational teams primarily composed of persons who attended the TMB. Analysis of interview and questionnaire data revealed that the training program did not change attitudes toward management and planning, and that some positive training effects occurred in role relationships and group standards. In addition, the organization that showed some effects or changes attributable to training was also consistently lower on all of the measurement variables than either the other Experimental State or the Control.
