Administrators Solving the Problems of Practice: Decision-making Concepts, Cases, and Consequences
Publisher's description: This book describes eight different models of decision-making, compares the models, and illustrates how to use each model with actual cases from schools. The frameworks include classical, administrative, incremental, mixes scanning, political, and garbage-can models, as well as two models of shared decision-making. After illustrating the use of these decision-making models to analyze and develop solution strategies, students have the opportunity to explore about fifty actual cases to build their own analyses and solution strategies.
