Coordination in Vocational Education Planning--Barriers and Facilitators. Research and Development Series No. 187.
Starr, Harold; And Others
This monograph is intended to provide readers with a more informed understanding of the current state of coordination in vocational education planning. The report consists of three chapters and two appendixes. Following the introduction (chapter 1), the second chapter describes general processes and procedures that are useful for facilitating improvements in coordinative relationships in support of vocational education planning and ways for facilitating improved coordinative relationships with respect to specific problems and barriers to coordination. These barriers are presented in terms of a theoretical perspective and its operational implications. This chapter also contains examples that depict how coordination in vocational education planning is impeded by the identified barriers. Chapter 3 contains descriptions of the concept of coordination, basic necessities for interorganizational relations, and characteristics underlying coordinated behavior that can enhance or impede coordination. Chapter 3 also includes a table that cross-references facilitators to coordination, which are found in chapter 2, with facilitators to coordination derived from the literature review. Appended material includes a list of field-site coordinators and consultants who participated in the study and a list of the persons by role who participated in the dialogue sessions. (LRA)
