MANAGEMENT BY OBJECTIVES APPLIED TO TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM MANAGEMENT

Management by objectives requires input by all members of the management and supervisory staff of an organization; efforts are aimed at the achievement of stated results or objectives. Transportation system management in urban areas demands that transit and highway interests join forces in developing plans and action programs to make better use of existing facilities. This paper explores both management by objectives and transportation system management and provides suggestions on how the MBO technique can be used to design a TSM action plan. /Author/
