[management improvement model]
The Management Improvement Model concept is patterned after the Software Engineering Laboratory (SEL) model of software process/product improvement, developed by the Computer Science Department of the University of Maryland at College Park. The SEL model is a three stage evolutionary scheme based on a feedback loop of goals, questions, and measurements of the effects of changes, all within the structure of previous experiences. The Management Improvement Model was constructed for flat organizations, such as school administrations that do similar work but are separate, independent entities.

The Management Improvement Model consists of Stages (Understanding, Assessment, and Implementation) that describe general points of achievement in the improvement process, and processes that describe what is needed to reach each Stage. See Figure.
