Planning methodology should concentrate first on outcomes before emphasizing inputs and processes. In developing a plan for planning for a State community college system, such questions as these must be answered: why plan? who plans? what is to be included in the planning? what is the time frame for planning? Five general processes, each a subsystem of activities, tasks, resources, policies, and procedures, are involved in the planning cycle for Florida: (1) an assessment of the conditions and environment of the community college system; (2) an assessment of societal needs the college is responsible for considering; (3) a definition of goals and setting of objectives based on the needs assessment; (4) a determination of a program of action to achieve the objectives; and (5) an assessment of progress toward achieving the objectives. The Community College System Plan is designed to produce a document specifying clear goals and objectives for the State system. Involved in developing such a plan are: status assessment, needs assessment, evaluation of the current long-range plan, statement of assumptions, identification and documentation of system-wide goals, and development of the planning procedures manual. College Planning Systems should be developed to serve the management and planning needs of the individual colleges. The Community College Program Plan and Budget should state goals, objectives, and resource requirements for the State for a multi-year period. The Statewide Plan, when completed, should include the purpose of the plan, program plans and budgets, and assessment of the prior year long-range system plan. An implementation schedule and program structure are appended. (KM)
