Summary of Master’s Study as submitted to Master’s Abstracts: TITLE OF THESIS: Negotiation as Education Management Skill WRITTEN BY: C J M Clarke FOR THE DEGREE: Master of Education IN THE SUBJECT: Educational Management SUPERVISOR: Professor C van Wyk SUMMARY: The summary investigates the extent to which effective educational managers need to employ negotiation as a vital education management skill. It examines the present nature of schools as educational organisations primarily through the political model of educational management. Furthermore, the essence, styles and methods of the negotiation process are researched and described. The investigation proves conclusively that negotiation is one of the most successful methods of reaching a mutually acceptable outcome in various conflict situations within an educational organisation. It also becomes evident that negotiation is bound to become increasingly important to the effective management of educational organisations in the future, and that it is imperative that educational managers need to be trained and experienced negotiators. The study concludes with recommendations regarding the training of educational managers as negotiators and offers suggestions concerning the need for further research in this field. 3.
