Theory and Practice of the Administrative Team.
Balance of power shifts in education have led to dramatically changed concepts of authority role relationships in school systems. There is a growing appreciation of the need for valid, knowledgeable inputs to the administrative decisionmaking process from various organizational levels, and a growing understanding of the values of well-conceived group decisionmaking. These and other factors are leading administrators to an intensified interest in the nature and benefits of the administrative team concept in educational governance. This monograph attempts to lay the goundwork for understanding the place of such a team in the administrative scheme of things, develops a definition, and identifies some of the prerequisites to the successful operation of administrative teams.
