Designing and Managing Programs: An Effectiveness-Based Approach
SAGE Publications, 1999 - Social Science - 262 pages
How can you design effective social programs? How can you ensure that those programs address the needs of those they serve? Designing and Managing Programs offers the answers and provides instructions for designing, implementing, managing, and assessing social programs. The authors first tackle the problem of identifying the need for specific social programs. Next, they discuss program design, goal-setting, budget development and management, administration, and program evaluation. In this second edition of Designing and Managing Programs, the authors have strengthened the usability and the timeliness of the book and incorporated changes to the technical sections on goals and objectives, program design, management information systems, and budgeting. This volume also includes new material on evaluation of quality and performance measurement and a new appendix that illustrates a format for reporting performance measures.
