Organizational Development and PPB for Education.
Derr, C. Brooklyn
Current practices of planning-programing-budgeting systems in educational organizations have been criticized because they impose objectives, emphasize hierarchical control, and foster unproductive climates. A new method, organizational development, makes effective use of human behavior and when used with PPBS could provide an efficient system for educational planning. PPB methods combined with organizational development treat humans as a resource, and one of the first objectives is to improve communication skills and channels so that all members can participate in decisionmaking. Such participation decentralizes hierarchical control, allowing participants to set goals; and it maintains the proper motivational climate. A related document is EA 003 241. (RA)
