Summary

There is much to be gained by using systems analysis in educational administration. Most administrators, presently relying on classical statistical techniques restricted to problems having few variables, should be trained to use more sophisticated tools such as systems analysis. The systems analyst, interested in the basic processes of a group or organization, attempts to use available resources to maximize goal attainment. Linear programing provides a valuable tool for the analyst by considering dynamic relationshiips among many variables. Systems management and systems design represent two different levels of activity, the former concerned with day-to-day operation and the latter with organizational patterns. Systems management requires two types of personnel--the system manager and the system researcher. The manager replaces administrative roles such as the superintendent and principal; the researcher is analogous to the business analyst. The key to the effective performance of these roles--and hence to the benefits of systems analysis--lies in the degree to which suitable training can be provided for role incumbents. (HW)
