Designing and Planning Programs for Nonprofit and Government Organizations is a comprehensive guide for practitioners who must carry out program planning projects in nonprofit or government human service organizations. Authors Edward J. Pawlak and Robert D. Vinter—experts in the field of program planning—show how planning is a goal-directed activity that will succeed when its tasks are carried out in orderly, progressive stages. In this important resource, the authors walk practitioners and students through the entire process from initiation to completion of planning projects and examine the relationship between planning, implementation, and program operations.

For people designing service programs within nonprofit and government organizations, and for students aspiring to work in service programs, two veterans of the field provide insight into the process of planning new or significantly changed service programs in such human service organizations. Planning is an extended, goal-directed activity carried out is stages with tasks that should be undertaken in an orderly, progressive manner, they explain, but it is a developmental rather than linear process, with work at later stages often requiring back-tracking to make revisions in earlier stages.
