Management by Objectives and Program Planning and Budgeting Systems: A Guidebook for Developing a Model Local Annual Plan and a Model Local Five-Year Plan for Vocational Education.
The guidebook is intended to acquaint vocational educators with two specific management strategies: Management by Objectives (MBO) and the Program Planning and Budget System (PPBS). The long range goal of this project is the formation of a model local annual plan and model five year plan for vocational education in local school districts throughout Indiana. For this reason, it was necessary to examine the theoretical bases for MBO and PPBS as well as to develop detailed, practical steps for implementing the systems at the local level. Chapter 1 presents the rationale for the development of the MBO system, and examines its benefits and pitfalls. Chapters 2 through 5 detail the theory and practical applications of the four phases of MBO: (1) establishing mission and role statements, (2) setting and validating objectives, (3) developing action plans to achieve objectives, and (4) developing a performance appraisal system. Chapter 6 defines PPBS and discusses its advantages and disadvantages. The document concludes with appended worksheets and evaluation forms. (Author/BP)
