Planning, Management and Evaluation: Realizing PIC Potential. Private Industry Council Guide. Working Draft.
National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.
This Planning, Management, and Evaluation (PME) guide was developed by the National Alliance of Business as part of its program of management assistance for Private Industry Councils (PICs). The guide is a tool which PICs can use to improve their capability to plan, manage, and evaluate the programs which they administer, and to establish locally defined business-oriented performance standards for TITLE VII programs. The guide contains five major sections. Section 1 discusses PIC PME in general and provides a self-assessment checklist which can be used to evaluate the present status of the PIC's PME approach, while section 2 provides a general orientation and introduction to the PME process. In section 3, the specific phases and steps in the process are detailed, and information and techniques which can be employed in applying the steps are explained. Sections 4 and 5 contain aids and records to be used in implementing and documenting the PME process in PICs. In addition, a glossary contains the definitions of concepts and terms which are central to the PME process, and an appendix cites additional material which can be referred to in order to facilitate the development and refinement of the PIC's PME system. (This guide and the planning, management, and evaluation process which it presents are being field tested this fiscal year with ten PICs. Based upon that field test, the process and the guide will be revised, refined, and then packaged in final form for national dissemination.) (KC)
