The purpose of this study was to determine the technological, organizational,
legislative, and research events that should be included
in a 1989 revision of A Chronology of Business Education in the United
States last updated in 1968 by Samuel J. Wanous with selected events added
in 1977 by National Business Education Association staff. To achieve this
objective a modified Delphi technique was employed using a 29-member
The Delphi panel was comprised of 23 members of the Policies Commission
and 6 John Robert Gregg award winners. The panel members provided
expertise in business education, a national perspective, and representation
of the major professional organizations. The members of the Policies
Commission in effect define business education and are considered
to be experts in the field. The John Robert Gregg award winners have made
outstanding contributions to the development and advancement of business
education. Additionally, the Delphi panel members represented the five
geographic regions of the United States (i.e., Eastern, Mountain-Plains,
North-Central, Southern, and Western). The professional organizations
in business education (i.e., American Vocational Association, National
Business Education Association, and Delta Pi Epsilon) were all represented.
