An Approach for Improved Planning in Colleges.
Schroeder, Roger G.
Planning and management systems for colleges should be tailor-made to fit each particular college. The approach suggested here is flexible so that it can be adapted to individual circumstances in a variety of colleges. What is being suggested is an approach to planning rather than a technique. The approach results in two types of output documents: (1) a planning procedures manual, and (2) a planning book consisting of college plans, unit plans, and regular planning information. If the approach is successfully implemented, an institution should have less crises oriented management, more effective resource utilization, and a better means of adapting to its environment. This document describes the proposed approach in some detail, and it indicates how to proceed with implementation. (Author/KE)
