Evaluation in a Management by Objectives System.
Management and supervision in a management by objectives system do not focus on the quality or efficiency of a list of activities. Rather, the manager and supervisor validate progress in reaching agreed outcomes. The implementation of a management and supervision by results approach requires (a) agreement on a statement of mission; (b) agreement on lists of resources, rules-regulations-norms, organization patterns, and operatives; (c) agreement on programs; (d) development of a summary chart of actual status of the organization; (e) development of expectations and standards for the project; (f) negotiation between the project director and his/her superior and the Office of Education for resources, rules, norms, regulation changes, organization pattern, operatives and assignments, programs, and other approvals needed to implement agreed-upon programs and objectives; and (g) reports by project director on the results of the activities of team leaders, support personnel, and other operatives. This process can be implemented in many management or supervision styles, but it requires that outcomes be examined and not individual activities. (Several charts and forms are included.) (RC)
