Competencies of Leaders and Managers in Educational Research and Development. Independent Research and Development Project Reports. Report No. 4.
This report clarifies pilot efforts which address new problem areas in educational needs. The project was initiated to determine the specific competencies essential to the management of educational projects in research and development. The goals of the project were to establish a profile of identified competencies for use in planning the content of the intern training programs for women and minorities, and to prepare a profile for possible national dissemination. Among competency differences between program managers and program staff are: freedom to act in decision making; ability to handle diverse tasks in project management; and possession of technical expertise applicable to research and development. Effective management of research projects require competence in: (1) supervision; (2) budget management; (3) public relations; (4) communications; (5) documentation; (6) planning; and (7) evaluation.
