Planning Techniques for Local Programs of Vocational Education.
Malinski, Joseph F.
This paper presents a synthesis of the development of educational management practices, with the aim of improving communications among the various institutions providing vocational programs at the local level and the agencies providing programs support at local, state, and national levels. The planning and management cycle consists of: (1) policy planning, which is concerned with the identification, description, structuring, and evaluation of goals and objectives, (2) work planning, which is the process of determining how to accomplish a selected objective efficiently and effectively and is concerned with the immediate task of planning, organizing, scheduling, and controlling resources, (3) development of a management information system, which provides information for operations control and long range planning, and (4) development of a formalized procedure for organizing and reorganizing management information in ways that will improve policy planning, work planning, and program operating decisions. The process of planning and managing local programs will vary according to the perception of planning and program management. Awareness of the Federal laws and agencies providing support will help clarify the atmosphere in which the local planner must work. (SB)
