** Background about Task Cycle Theory
The Task Cycle(R) is a logical sequence of steps essential to directing the performance of tasks. It is based on theories of learning, cognition, and motivation. The Task Cycle is a scientifically validated, predictive model of successful management and leadership practices with well-researched mathematical foundations. Clark Wilson, Ph.D. broke new ground in 1973 when he introduced the Survey of Management Practices. Today, the Task Cycle 360 Feedback Series is the longest established, best researched 360 feedback collection available.
