Planning and Program Budgeting Workbook.
Redburn, Steve; And Others
The workbook is a training tool designed to make the concept of program planning and budgeting available to small social agencies in a simplified and practical form. It begins with a glossary and an explanation of the Annual Program Budgeting Cycle, the basis for the process described. The first four chapters contain summarized material, references, and activities which: (1) provide a process for the agency to reach a working consensus about goals and priorities, (2) give instruction and practical exercise in writing specific objectives, (3) aid the agency in developing a program structure and budget, and (4) provide a process for immediately assessing agency performance levels. The final chapter deals with program planning and presents guidelines on how to assess community problems and how to develop and analyze alternative solutions to those problems. Also included is a program budgeting calendar. (Author/MS)
