McGivney, Joseph H.
This institute was held at Ohio State University, October 21-November 1, 1968 to fulfill two main purposes: (1) to provide an opportunity for personnel in state departments of vocational education to become knowledgeable in the concepts, methods, and practice of Planning, Programming, and Budgeting Systems (PPBS), and (2) to test a package of PPBS training materials designed for use in training state and local vocational educators. The 2-week training institute was attended by 47 participants from 40 states, representing a variety of leadership roles within vocational education. The main instructional topics covered during the institute were: overview of PPBS, the planning process, program budgeting, programing and management control, analysis of educational benefits and costs, data requirements, and political and organizational aspects. Evaluation instruments were used to measure participants' understanding and to obtain recommendations.
