An Executive Training Program.
This manual describes the implementation of the Far West Laboratory's educational research and development management training program for women and minorities and offers guidelines to institutions and industries creating their own internship programs. A chapter on holistic learning for executives analyses a model incorporating a coordinating council composed of management staff and the use of mentors, seminars, coursework, supervised on-the-job training, and peer teamwork. The following chapter addresses questions for institutions considering implementing training programs. A section devoted to knowing the power structure suggests ways of involving top administrative personnel in developing the program. Installation of the program is outlined in chapters on development of a coordinating council, selection of a project director, the role of mentors, and the intern selection process. Describing the program in action are chapters on the interns' planning process and intern meetings, case studies showing how two interns used the resources of the program to advance themselves, and the project director's duties in keeping it running. A summary of program content discusses the improvements in knowledge and skills that interns gained under the general areas of program management, technical writing, knowledge of funding sources, and professional expertise. A final chapter considers obtaining graduate accreditation for participation in the program. (MJL)
