Topics covered include a rationale for needs assessment; internal and external needs assessment; inputs, processes, products, outputs, and outcomes; school system management; and curriculum focus. Procedures based on operational experiences in education and training include how to get started; a general guide to Alpha Needs Assessment; conducting the Beta Needs Assessment; techniques for consensual determination; and needs assessment for project, program, and staff-development, as well as in non-educational contexts.

14 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ways that school administrators can develop or improve their strategic thinking and learning skills are presented in this guidebook, which forces the planner to change his or her actual thinking about planning before taking action. Chapter 1 deals with overcoming single-issue thinking and becoming proactive. Basic concepts and tools are provided, some of which include distinguishing between ends and means, defining the primary client and beneficiary of the educational system, relating the three levels of educational planning and results, and identifying why schools fail. Chapter 2 provides a four-phase framework and the basic tools and concepts for strategic planning. The third chapter shows how to prepare measurable objectives, define and develop needs assessments, and prepare data, and asks seven basic questions. Chapter 4 presents strategies for mega-level planning (when the client is the community). Chapter 5 describes the macro-level planning process, when the primary client is the school. The sixth chapter explains micro-level planning and distinguishes between strategic and tactical planning. Chapter 7 details how to develop the strategic action plan, including operational planning, methods-means analysis, quasi-needs assessments, systems analysis, and continuous improvement through Total Quality Management and Total Quality Management Plus. Ways to prevent problems and deal with them when they arise are discussed in chapter 8. Chapter 9 presents a case study on strategic thinking in a school district. Twenty-three tables, 29 figures, and a five-page bibliography are included. (Lmi)

Auditing your educational strategic plan : making a good thing better by Roger A Kaufman( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every organization needs a plan for achieving its objectives; however, strategic plans are often developed for the wrong reasons. This book presents self-help tools for school leaders interested in assessing the efficacy of their school's strategic plan. Chapter 1 explains why it is important to review educational strategic plans. Chapter 2 identifies six critical factors for success: (1) moving out of your comfort zone; (2) differentiating between ends and means; (3) using and integrating results; (4) preparing objectives; (5) defining need; and (6) planning based on your ideal vision. Two frameworks for evaluating plans are also described--the Organizational Elements Model (oem) and a costs-consequences analysis. Steps in the strategic-planning process are detailed in the third chapter--scoping, planning, and implementing and continuously evaluating. Eleven common mistakes are identified in chapter 4. The final chapter provides step-by-step details for assessing the usefulness and comprehensiveness of the strategic-planning effort. Evaluation tools for analyzing the scope and plan focus on linking the level of the school vision with the appropriate evaluation measure and on conducting valid needs assessment. Nine figures and 11 tables are included. Appendices contain a scoring table, evaluation scoresheet, and a glossary. (Contains 67 references.) (Lmi)
