Adventure in Planning--Roadmap to a Successful Journey. Field Test Edition.
Carey, Jan Kelly
This manual adapts the basic concepts of an industry-based long-range strategic planning model to an intermediate education unit, specifically the Santa Clara County Office of Education. It is intended for those responsible for defining and implementing a planning process. The basic theme of the manual is that of planning a journey, with many routes to the destination and many options within the routes. Accordingly, Chapter 1, "Adventure in Planning--Roadmap to a Successful Journey," includes a definition and philosophy of strategic planning, a process analysis, hazards, and requirements for successful planning. Chapter 2, "Definition of Purpose," provides a series of "routes" and options to show how statements of purpose focus the goals and activities of an organization. Chapter 3 provides four "routes" for analysis of the level of need or demand for services. Chapter 4 provides six "routes" for analysis of current and future external factors, while chapter 5 provides nine alternative "routes to action" after data have been collected. Chapter 6, "The Adventure Continues," summarizes the basic insights of the manual as a whole. A 34-item bibliography and glossary are included, along with a series of appendixes to chapters 4, 5, and 6. (TE)
