Changing organizations and community programs
Sage Publications, Apr 1, 1981 - Business & Economics - 160 pages
The task of the direct service worker, planner, organizer, or administrator is formidable. Often goals are broad, idealistic, and unpopular. There may be strong organizational or community resistance to innovative approaches or to increased service budgets. This manual is a preliminary effort to confront such problems and provide effective strategies that will enable the 'doing of good' in execution as well as in intent.
