Implementation of Successful Staff Development, Training and Follow-Up Using Quality Circle Employee Involvement in School-Based Management Schools.
Petersen, Margaret B.
Results of a staff development program designed to enhance participative decision-making through improving the quality circle process are presented in this practicum report. Methodology was based on two sets of interviews--needs assessment and followup--with school leaders at two school sites and onsite observation. After identifying problems in implementing quality circle training in participative decision-making, the researcher collaborated with the school administrator and quality circle liaison person and developed a staff development model to improve utilization of the quality circle process and techniques. A conclusion is that the practicum implementation was successful in identifying needs and providing assistance. Recommendations are made for improving network leader training and providing for immediate technical assistance. Appendices contain the needs assessment survey, identified need checklist, final evaluation questionnaire, and staff development model. (49 references) (LMI)
