Problem Identification Survey Handbook for Parish Rural Development Committees.
Koch, Kenneth A.
The Task Force on Resource Development of the Cooperative Extension Service, Louisiana State University, decided to utilize the leader identification technique as a means of assisting the parish rural development committees in the rural development process. The technique is a procedure to stimulate effective citizen participation to identify community problems, to establish a priority of problems, to select alternate solutions, to plan for action, and to implement a plan of action. In this handbook, the entire process for conducting and following up a problem identification survey is outlined step by step. Form letters and news releases to accompany each step are included, and the responsibilities of persons involved in various capacities are described. The 21 steps are listed in the sequence the Task Force thought would be most desirable. The steps are separated into 3 sections: (1) the problem identification survey, (2) a town hall meeting to involve members of the community in the problem-solving process, and (3) the methods to be used in organizing for action.
