Improvement of the Management and Administration of Education Systems Through the Use of Modern Management Methods and Techniques.
The number and diversity of the parameters involved in the organization of modern education make it necessary to employ modern management methods and techniques to optimize decisions about the organization and improve the use of available material and financial resources. To accomplish these goals, a systems approach is advisable. A model of any educational institution's activities can be prepared, although the management and scientific administration of services calls for the application of certain modern methods which must be tailored to suit the specific conditions existing. Problem solving methods such as Delphi and brainstorming, as well as data processing systems, can be helpful in improving educational management and encouraging educational development. (Author)
