Improving the Performance of Educational Managers. Working Paper Series.
Lavin, Richard J.; Sanders, Jean E.
The Educational Management Development Center (EMDC) seeks to build the organizational capability for problem-solving through a process offered in the context of a dynamic, operating system. The problem-oriented school manager is helped by support staff to take administrative theory, successful practices, personal experiences, and leadership qualities to transform his own development to yield relative insight. The support staff helps apply and analyze real problems over time. Also, designed to formulate, maintain and monitor the decision-making of school systems, EMDC is systematically testing which problem-solving capabilities can be improved in local schools, and subsequently contribute to the development and maintenance of behavior in schools via guided problem-solving and management development activities.
