Managerial and Supervisory Training Techniques and Methods.
Civil Service Commission, Washington, DC. Bureau of Training.
Designed as an aid for selecting methodology for training supervisors and managers, the material in this booklet is presented in four sections: (1) group discussion methods (several methods which can be used as alternatives to formal classroom training--symposium, conference, forum, workshop); (2) group participation techniques (strategies to intensify participant involvement--role playing, case study, brainstorming, in-basket exercise, managerial games, laboratory training); (3) information presentation techniques (traditional lecture and other presentation techniques which stress a one-way transfer of information from instructor to learner, e.g., instructional television); and (4) individual development methods (learning experiences the participant can undertake at his or her own convenience, with the help of others, and outside the classroom, e.g., self-paced instruction). A description of each approach is given along with its advantages and disadvantages. Also provided are brief comments on developing or obtaining the necessary materials and on the main procedures for using each method or technique. Related approaches are listed for most items. Sources of detailed information about each approach are also suggested. (BL)
