Management by Objectives Implementation Sequence.
Leverenz, Susan K.; And Others
Management by Objectives is a system which allows an organization to plan its course of action, assist individuals contributing to that course, and determine progress toward mutually accepted goals. The system allows every individual in the organization regardless of level and responsibility to know what is expected of him, where he may look for guidance and assistance, and with whom he is expected to coordinate in his work. This publication outlines, in detail, the steps followed by the Oklahoma State Department of Vocational and Technical Education when installing a Management by Objectives System. Included are guidelines for: (1) developing the organization's goals and objectives, (2) developing personal job functions and performance objectives for individual accountability in the process of achieving the overall goals and objectives of the organization, (3) establishing performance evaluation sessions to determine the success or failure in achieving the desired outcomes of the organization and the individual's responsibilities, and (4) implementing the management system. Flow charts and examples augment the guidelines. (SB)
