Abstract: CHAPTER I EXPLORES THE SOURCES OF THE TRADITIONAL VIEW OF DISCIPLINE AS A MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUE TO CONTROL EMPLOYEE BEHAVIOR. IT DISCUSSES THE NEGATIVE CHARACTER OF DISCIPLINE AND THE VIEW THAT DISCIPLINE IS A SINGLE ISOLATED MANAGEMENT FUNCTION. IT ALSO CONTRASTS THE MILITARY MODEL OF MANAGEMENT AND DISCIPLINE WITH A MORE ADAPTIVE ORGANIZATIONAL APPROACH. CHAPTER II DISCUSSES THE USEFULNESS OF TOOLS FOR EFFECTIVE DISCIPLINE. A FEW EXAMPLES ARE WRITTEN DIRECTIVES DELINEATING MANAGEMENT EXPECTATIONS; ASSIGNMENTS OF AUTHORITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY; UNITS FOR INSPECTION AND CONTROL; AND GOALS AND OBJECTIVES FOR INTERNAL DISCIPLINE. CHAPTER III DEVELOPS THE IDEA THAT IN THE HANDLING OF DISCIPLINARY CASES, THE PROCESS IS SIMILAR FOR ALL MAJOR CASES. OFTEN AS MANY AS TEN ELEMENTS ARE INCLUDED, SUCH AS CONDUCT OF INVESTIGATIONS, IMPOSITION OF SANCTIONS, AND APPEALS. CHAPTER IV DEALS WITH THE EFFECTS OF THE PERSONALITIES, SKILLS, MOTIVES AND ROLES OF PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THE MANAGEMENT OF DISCIPLINE. PARTICIPATING, MONITORING, RECOGNIZING EXPECTATIONS, AND COPING WITH CONFLICTS AMONG VALUES AND ROLES, ARE SOME OF THE TOPICS COVERED IN THIS CHAPTER. CHAPTER V COMPILES KEY IDEAS FROM THE THREE PREVIOUS CHAPTERS, WITH PAGE REFERENCES. STATEMENTS SELECTED AND GROUPED IN CHAPTER V PRESENT A COMPACT, PRACTICAL OUTLINE FOR PERSONS WHO ARE CONSIDERING ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGES. CHAPTER VI IS A PROTOTYPE DOCUMENT CONTAINING RULES OF CONDUCT AND DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES FOR POLICE ORGANIZATIONS. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT)
