A panel of 20 forest supervisors, selected within four regions of the USDA Forest Service, ranked a total of 21 skills as important in carrying out their managerial responsibilities. The three skills ranked as presently most important were anticipating and analyzing critical issues, working with other disciplines, and developing and setting goals and priorities. Anticipating and analyzing critical issues and working with other disciplines were judged to be best enhanced by on-the-job training, while setting goals and priorities was viewed as a skill readily enhanced by formal development programs. Skills in evaluating alternatives and managing change were expected to be increasingly important in the future.
