An Introduction to Systems for the Educational Administrator.
Immegart, Glenn L.; Pilecki, Francis J.
A comprehensive introductory book on systems theory and practice in education, this text is designed for introductory graduate-level courses or for self-study. It presents an introduction to a wide variety of subjects, with references for more detailed study of individual topics. The emphasis is split between systems thought and systems procedures; the applications parts are derived from the authors' research and practical experience. The theoretical foundation developed by the authors is operationalized in terms of administrative problems and situations. Numerous examples are included to illustrate the relevance of the systems mode of thought. Practical applications are then developed in the light of heuristic and viable systems concepts. The authors believe systems theory offers a method of operating that squarely confronts the issues of organizational effectiveness and efficiency. (Author/IRT)
