This workbook is designed to provide the professional educator with an insight and some practical understanding of the management by objectives (MBO) process. It contains four sections, the first of which is an introduction. The next section gives an overview of MBO. It states that MBO is a process whereby two persons in an organization (a) identify goals, (b) define major areas of responsibility for an individual in terms of results expected from him/her, and (c) use achievement of results as guides for operating the organization and assessing the contribution of each of its members to the organization's mission and objectives. This section also describes the 10 step sequential flow of the MBO process which includes (a) defining roles and missions, (b) forecasting, (c) setting objectives, (d) programming, (e) scheduling, (f) budgeting, (g) establishing standards, (h) measuring performance, (i) taking corrective action, and (j) achieving objectives. The third section tells how to develop objectives and contains worksheets for the reader to complete. The last section, "Using Objectives to Manage Activity," also contains worksheets and charts. Appendixes are attached which include (a) action words for behavioral objectives, (b) common terms used in MBO, and (c) a bibliography and readings. (RC)
