Abstract

The purpose of the study was to examine selected business and education management by objectives (MBO) models and identify the common elements. These elements resulted in a consensus MBO model which was compared to determine agreement with the Clark County School District's Management and Accountability System for Secondary Schools. Educational accountability, the theoretical bases for MBO and MBO models in business and education were treated in the review of the literature. Graphic models developed in the study included the Clark County District's Management and Accountability System for Secondary Schools and a consensus MBO model; A management process based on the principles of management by objectives derived from the business world was reported as a suitable means for managing schools and communicating results to the public. The importance of people to an organization was judged as critical. MBO provided a means to deal effectively with people on a professional and productive basis while accomplishing the goals and objectives of the organization.
