Decisions: Perspectives for the School Administrator.
Effective administrative decisions result from the continuous and systematic appraisal of past decisions and of current conditions. Forty observations that may guide secondary school administrators in assessing and improving the effectiveness of their own decision-making processes are presented in this publication. Each observation is accompanied by a question that administrators can ask themselves about their own methods. The observations address such topic areas as the attitudes to be adopted toward decisions, the involvement of others in decision-making, assessment of the environmental factors that could affect the decision, the elements of careful planning, and demonstrations of leadership.
