The Area Superintendent: An In-Basket Simulation Exercise.
Musella, Donald F.; Joyce, H. Donald
The materials in this booklet simulate some of the problems that area superintendents could face working in actual situations. Taken from the real-life problems of some area superintendents, the exercises are presented in the form of in-basket items -- letters, memos, phone messages, etc. -- that require some action on the part of the person assuming the role of area superintendent. The materials are designed to (1) improve skills related to administrative processes; (2) provide a greater understanding of organizational relationships; (3) provide a greater understanding of role theory and role relationships; (4) improve comprehension of leadership and administrative roles; (5) provide a better understanding of self and others as part of interpersonal relationships within a group setting; (6) improve interpersonal skills in working with others through various models of operation; and (7) improve skills in the use of various models of problem solving.
