The Staff Development Implications of Management Self-Study.
Webster, Duane E.
The Management Review and Analysis Program (MRAP) provides resources and guidelines for a research library to use in conducting an internal assessment of management practices. The MRAP self-study project has two components: a procedural methodology for conducting the analysis, and a conceptual framework provided to assist in evaluation. The study normally occurs over one year and a second year is generally devoted to the implementation of study results. Participating libraries have access to the program manual, data collection instruments, group development exercises, and other resources including consultation and personal assistance. Experience applying MRAP to library problems provides information on organizational learning and information on common barriers which may limit growth and development of library staff. (CH)
