Annotation: GUIDELINES FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A MANAGEMENT BY OBJECTIVES SYSTEM IN A LAW ENFORCEMENT SETTING ARE PRESENTED IN A CHAPTER FROM A TEXT DIRECTED TO POLICE ADMINISTRATORS.
Abstract: DEFINITIONS OF THE MANAGEMENT BY OBJECTIVES APPROACH ARE REVIEWED, AND QUESTIONS THAT ORGANIZATIONS MUST ANSWER BEFORE CONSIDERING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF SUCH AN APPROACH ARE IDENTIFIED. LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES ARE URGED TO EXAMINE THE NATURE OF THEIR MISSION, THEIR REASON FOR EXISTING, THE EXTENT TO WHICH THEY ARE ACCOMPLISHING THEIR MISSION AND THE ROADBLOCKS TO EFFECTIVE LAW ENFORCEMENT. THE DISCUSSION THEN TURNS TO WAYS IN WHICH MANAGEMENT BY OBJECTIVES CAN HELP TO SOLVE SOME OF THE IDENTIFIED PROBLEMS. TECHNIQUES OF TIME DEMAND ANALYSIS, A PROBLEMSOLVING APPROACH THAT STRESSES THE REALLOCATION OF PRIORITIES, ARE EXPLAINED AND ILLUSTRATED IN APPLICATIONS TO LAW ENFORCEMENT PROBLEMS. GUIDELINES FOR FORMULATING AND WRITING OBJECTIVES ARE OFFERED, AS ARE SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPLEMENTING A MANAGEMENT BY OBJECTIVES PROGRAM. SAMPLE FORMS AND CHARTS ARE PRESENTED AS AIDS TO UNDERSTANDING THE MANAGEMENT BY OBJECTIVES PROCESS AND ITS EMPHASIS ON JOINT PARTICIPATION BY SUPERIORS AND SUBORDINATES. A SUMMARY AND A LIST OF QUESTIONS ACCOMPANY THE CHAPTER. (LKM)
