Goals and Objectives in PPBS.
Doherty, Victor
The most critical activity in the planning-programing-budgeting system is the specification and employment of goals and objectives. Program goals are the desired outcomes of a program, but program objectives are the changes in, or the creation of, program elements in a specified way to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of a program. Since only programs, not goals, can be translated into resource requirements and objectives, the entire system of planning, budgeting, and evaluating is dependent on the correct specification of program objectives. In a systems approach to education, programs can be classified, and objectives determined by their various functions, including instructional programs, support and service programs, and management programs. Examples of program objectives for each function are included. (RA)
