A Training Model for School-Based Decision Making.
Horgan, Dianne D.
The development of a comprehensive training model designed specifically for school-based decision making is discussed in this report, with a focus on teaching relevant skills and when to utilize them. Loosely based on Vroom and Yetton's 1973 model of participative decision making, the model is characterized by a general-to-specific continuum and an internal-to-external focus. It differs from the former model in its definition of the problem prior to the decision-making stage and omission of some of the attributes. The overall process divides the problem-solving task into smaller questions and offers guidance about when to elicit more general acceptance. Each training module includes information about the timeliness of utilizing different sets of skills and strategies, provides participation in prototypical case analysis, and develops a participant decision-making profile. One figure depicting the decision-making process is included. (LMI)
