Gessaman, Paul H.
This packet contains student materials and an instructor's guide for use in a series of workshops on the "GOALS Process" for persons in manufacturing businesses (often family-owned). The materials provide a framework for individual or family use in self-assessment and a means of identifying business and family life goals, setting priorities, and developing management plans--the "GOALS Process." The student materials start with a discussion of goals and goal-directed management. This introduction is followed by an interrelated sequence of activities through which participants can develop a management plan for attaining their high-priority goals. Activities include using a self-assessment questionnaire, answering questions about resources, and carrying out goal setting and planning. Forms for assessing preferences, determining goals, setting priorities, and creating a management plan are included in student materials. The instructor's guide takes workshop leaders through the GOALS Process, provides teaching suggestions, and includes three case studies to stimulate discussion. (KC)
