Planning and Managing Task and Time in Performance Oriented Management. Project Kansas 76: Concept Paper.
Holloway, William H.
A prevailing concern of leadership development is the extent to which performance-oriented training increases the ability of an individual to define and implement a process to accomplish stated objectives. The systems approach provides an analytic strategy for task decomposition into sequentially, temporally ordered activities without necessarily dictating the process by which distinct activities are to be accomplished. The planning techniques discussed in this paper are modified versions of the Program Evaluation and Review Technique and, like PERT, descend from network and graph theory. However, combined use of the time file and the procedural timetable appear to provide a definite, practical approach to significant increases in management performance as well as several advantages not associated with the use of PERT.
