Summary

Quality Circle/Site-Based Management (QCSBM) concepts were introduced into educational administrative structures during the early 1980s. The scarcity of comprehensive research that focuses on QCSBM implementation in public school districts was the catalyst for this exploratory study. Fifty-five of 100 administrators and consultants in 24 states responded to research questions designed to identify districts that had implemented QCSBM programs, to determine the impetus for implementation, and to solicit the respondents' perceptions of the results. Responses were given to the following questions: (1) What was the district's management structure prior to QCSBM? (2) What caused the district to move into QCSBM? (3) Which administrative faculty processes were utilized in QCSBM experiences? (4) What major variables are necessary for implementation? and (5) What are the advantages of QCSMB? A detailed account of results is provided. In general, those surveyed strongly identified with the philosophy that participative management and problem solving are critical to the people building skills of the education process as a whole.
