Analysis of the Role of Project Management in the LEA, Technical Memorandum No. 1. Interim Report. RF Project No. 3131-A1.
Cook, Desmond L.; And Others
Recent federal legislation in education has had an impact on education in the local school districts. The most obvious example is the use of federal funds and the consequent requirement for accountability. The local education agency is now faced with the need for management of the requirements for accountability. It is the intent of this memorandum to report on an analysis of one dimension of this management of public funds and programs--project management. The discussion of the role of project manager includes an examination of his job description (function, principal responsibilities, authority, duties, and techniques of management) and of the problem areas of the role. It is assumed that the reader is knowledgeable about innovations in education, the effect of massive involvement of the federal government in education, and the development of project management as a discipline. A number of appendixes provide related information. (Author/IRT)
