A Project Management Approach to Instructional Program Implementation.
Ball, Rodney J.; Cummings, C. Peter
This publication discusses application of the project management process to the management of an instructional program implementation effort. It is intended to supplement the implementation manuals that usually accompany new instructional programs to aid school district personnel in successfully implementing new instructional programs. The publication consists of a brief introduction and three main sections. The Overview of the Project Management Process section defines the concept of project and describes the basic activities involved in the project management process. The Management of an Implementation Project section defines the concept of an implementation project and discusses all the activities involved in the four phases of an implementation project. The Conclusion briefly summarizes the content of the previous sections and suggests sources of additional information or assistance regarding the management of an implementation project. (Author/JG)
