Participative Management: Its Place in Effectively Planning and Allocating an Institution's Data Processing Resources.
Glasscock, David G.; McKeown, Mary P.
Faced with decisions on how to most efficiently and effectively store and process information in a variety of administrative and educational areas, the educational manager is hindered by a lack of relevant literature. This paper suggests that the theory of participative management can be used to reach effective decisions in planning and allocating resources for data processing. Case studies of the use of participative management in making decisions related to data processing installations and management within a university environment are presented in this paper. Hints for applying this technique are given to assist other educational administrators in the effective allocation of scarce institutional resources for data processing. (Author/DAG)
