Indicators of Cooperative Planning--Imperial County, California.
A cooperative planning effort by six public service agencies in California's Imperial County, an agricultural region suffering from the nation's highest unemployment rate and lowest per capita income, was designed to link and integrate the agencies' employment and training programs. It was found that the proper perspective for planning is as important as the actual plan. The planning process revealed five basic questions that must be addressed by agencies intending to cooperate: (1) How can the roles and styles of the agencies and individuals involved be coordinated effectively? (2) Which agencies and individuals should be designated as leaders and how much authority should they have? (3) How can adequate information for planning be obtained? (4) How can cooperative planning be made nonthreatening to the agencies involved? (5) How can cooperative planning be instituted without increasing costs? (PGD)
