Management Development Study.
Department of Transportation, Washington, DC.
This document reports on a management development study within the Department of Transportation (DOT). The aim of the study was to develop a systematic approach to management development for military and civilian personnel. A variety of methods was used to gather data including having DOT staff members gather the information to be passed on to the consultants comprising the study team, field trips, formal briefings, interviews, and informal discussions. The study team's views on what steps to take to increase managerial effectiveness were gauged largely on the gravity that executives gave to various programs and the scope of activity that generally applies to sound programs. From the results, the following recommendations are made to the Secretary of DOT: (1) a comprehensive management development program should be established in all elements of the Department; (2) each element should design and implement a program to meet its current and future needs; (3) each element should utilize a cost-benefit analysis to determine what portions of the program should be done in-house or outside, (4) institutes a department-wide executive development program for high level managers; (5) the Office of Personnel and Training, OST, should provide every assistance; and (6) budgetary priority should be exercised.
