A Performance Accountability System for School Administrators.
Bell, Terrel H.
This book is intended to serve as a practical guidebook for school administrators who wish to implement a management-by-objectives (MBO) system in their school or school system. The author discusses the key factors necessary for a successful MBO system and explains how to apply them most effectively. An attempt is made to present a thorough, easy-to-use plan suitable for use by administators who have had no experience with MBO systems. Major topics discussed include school and college management by objectives, identifying educational problems through needs assessment, the chief executive's performance priorities, establishing operational objectives, time-phased action steps, operational management and execution of action step plans, staff involvement and participative management, starting an MBO system, and the chief executive's role in MBO.
