Summary

In adult education, program planning and administrative management are important areas within which economic analysis may contribute to effective and efficient decision making. The adult education administrator is faced with a dual economic task: (1) to prove beforehand that his programs will pay for the operating budget he is demanding; and (2) to make correct decisions both administratively and in the market-place to insure an efficiently operating organization and a continuous inflow of participants and funds. Two concepts are discussed to aid the adult educator at both the program planning stage and within his administrative functions: planning, programing and budgeting systems (PPBS) and cost benefit analysis (CBA). An overview of the demand for PPBS is presented as a rationale for its increasing acceptance, and a 10-step procedure is developed for generalized use in any educational institution. Within this 10-step procedure, CBA is introduced as one of the many possible program evaluation techniques to judge a program's worth. An example of CBA using a manpower training program is presented to allow the reader to understand the scope and limitations of the technique. A 36-item bibliography is included. (Author/EC)
