Administrative Policy Analysis, Budgeting, Implementation, and Evaluation: An Overview to Policy/Program Analysis and Evaluation Techniques, Package VI.
Daneke, Gregory A.; Steiss, Alan Walter
This overview serves as an introduction to a series of ten curriculum modules that comprise a portion of the National Training and Development Service Urban Management Curriculum Development Project. The overview was designed to provide a generalized discussion of the field of government policy/program analysis and evaluation. The training program for municipal managers is based on a conception of public management that combines and expands the traditional approaches of public administration, policy analysis, comprehensive planning, public budgeting, and fiscal/economic analysis into a coordinated process capable of yielding rational public policies and decisions. The overview discusses policy analysis within the context of public administration, presents a systems theory perspective and its effects on policy analysis, and introduces the ten curriculum modules which comprise the program.
