Management by Objectives (MBO) in Student Services.
Dannemiller, Kathleen D.; Linta, Edward
Management by Objectives (MBO), provides student personnel administrators some help in responding to the complexity of a constantly changing student community. MBO is a goal- and result-oriented process for effective management. A major MBO assumption is that people work better if they are clear about goals, if they help in setting their own job goals, and if they are clear about how they will be evaluated. For MBO to function successfully, all organization members need to understand and agree with the concept. Several pitfalls that might hinder the smooth functioning of MBO are discussed. Action steps to implement MBO, procedures and designs for setting goals, and the effect of management style on MBO implementation are described. The report presents three case studies in which MBO proved useful as well as common errors in trying to establish MBO-oriented programs. (Author/SE)
