Strategic Management in the Community College. New Directions for Community Colleges, Number 44.
Myran, Gunder A., Ed.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n44 Dec 1984
Articles in this sourcebook discuss six strategic areas of community college management: external relations, internal communication and working relationships, financial resources development and allocation, program and service development, staff development, and strategic planning. First, "Strategic Management in the Community College," by Gunder A. Myran defines the concept and demonstrates the need for the approach in the two-year college. Next, James Gollattscheck examines "Strategic Elements of External Relationships," asserting that positive relations with the community, region, and state are key in determining a college's future. "The Strategy of Internal Communications and Working Relationships," by Dennis Bila, focuses on various administration-faculty structures and the options available for a shared governance model. "Strategic Planning," by Warren Groff, focuses on external assessment, internal audit, and goal setting as essential planning components. The interrelationships between institutional goals and financial resources are discussed in Albert Lorenzo's article, "Strategic Elements of Financial Management." In "The Critical Link: From Plans to Programs," George A. Baker and Kay M. Moore discuss strategic elements in program and service development. Next, Nancy Armes and Terry O'Banion examine "The Role of the Chief Executive Officer in Strategic Staff Development." Finally, Jim Palmer provides an annotated bibliography of relevant ERIC documents. (Author/LAL)
