Valentine, Ivan E.
Designed to provide administrators of occupation programs at the secondary and post-secondary level with a systems approach to administration, this administrators' guide brings together administrative and leadership tasks and responsibilities that must be considered by administrators when developing programs. The system presented in the guide is designed to provide direction in determining strategies, priorities, and alternatives relative to the administration process and management functions in the operation of occupational programs. The content of the guide is structural to provide: (1) an introduction to the systems approach and a technique for developing a basic flow chart depicting a systems approach for analyzing administrative responsibilities, (2) a problem-solving and decision-making model, (3) an administrative profile of the tasks and functions performed by administrators in the decision-making process, and (4) specific models for each of the major administrative functions pertaining to planning, developing, implementing, and evaluating the effectiveness of occupational programs.
