Activity Analysis and Scheduling for MBO.
Read, Bruce H.
When programs or projects involve a complexity of personnel and activities, it often becomes an administrator's headache to keep the program on course. Some type of program operational guide (often referred to as work plans or management manuals) should be developed to assist program staff with management of the implementation process. An analysis of project activities and completion times serves as a foundation for the construction of these operational guidelines and assists administrators in determining areas of personnel responsibilities, deadlines for the accomplishment of critical activities, and progress toward program goals. This booklet addresses the topics of activity analysis and scheduling for supporting a management system such as management by objectives. Two types of scheduling formats are presented and discussed.
