Management by Objectives and Results -- a Guidebook for Today's School Executive.
This text is of a series of three handbooks, each intended to provide busy educational executives with a brief, practical overview of one major issue or movement. This book aims at providing both the theoretical base of the management by objectives and results (MBO/R) system of management and suggestions for its practical application. The author first discusses the relation of MBO/R to the field of education, the MBO/R system as a personnel management system, and MBO/R as a comprehensive management system. He then explains how to generate and work with educational objectives. In an effort to assist administrators in managing for results and operations in the MBO/R mode, the author next considers programing to produce a work plan, allocating resources, monitoring to determine progress, and controlling to keep the organization on target; and sets out some strategies to implement an MBO/R system. A general change model is included, and the phases readiness, pilot testing, innovation management, followup, and institutionalization are discussed. Related documents are EA 005 233 and EA 005 282.
