Management Improvement Strategies in a Multi-School Organization.
Baker,Michael E.; Johnson, Norman J.
This paper describes some important aspects of the first two years of operation of the Educational Management Development Center (EMDEC). EMDEC was created in 1974 through a joint effort of the Carnegie-Mellon School of Urban and Public Affairs, the Kettering Foundation, and the Allegheny County Intermediate Unit in an attempt to extend the management capabilities of school administrators. Separate sections of the paper describe the organizational structure and objectives of EMDEC, EMDEC's activities during its first year of operation, the activities planned by EMDEC for its second year of operation, and suggested approaches for evaluating the impact of EMDEC's activities. Included in the discussion of organizational objectives is a description of a survey of school administrators conducted by EMDEC shortly after its formation. Significant findings about administrators' attitudes toward administrator preparation programs and school system priorities are summarized in two data tables. In addition, the complete survey questionnaire is included in the appendix. (JG)
