Approaching Academic Efficiency. Lessons for Educators from Business and Politicians.
Kemerer, Frank R.
While assuming the uniqueness of the educational organization, educational administrators can nevertheless learn five important principles from business management. The five principles are: (1) defining organizational goals; (2) implementation of goals on a cost-effective basis; (3) monitoring and assessmentof staff performance; (4) a formal procedure for exploration of new techniques and purposes; and (5) long-range economic and academic planning. From politics educational administrators can learn one more principle--development of a political systems' perspective in order to implement successfully management decisions. (Author/KE)
