Evaluating a Development Program.
Frantzreb, Arthur C.
Problems in evaluating the success of an institutional resource development program are examined and suggestions are offered for effective assessment. Such a program is seen as a sequence of events in the artful management of people, from the planning stage to obtaining a financial commitment in writing from persons who want to share their assets for the benefits of others. Certain conditions are identified under which the development officer and the development program will not suffer low productivity ratings. Twenty-five additional factors are identified which will contribute to the institution's failure in its development program. Evaluation of a development program must include the intangible criteria of pride of accomplishment in preparing for a better, warmer understanding of mission and services of the institution by a larger number of people. Success is tested in terms of successful communication to all constituents. The importance of person-to-person meetings is emphasized. (LBH)
