Week 1 Check Point: Program Planning Terminology

Hi Brea! How are you?? As for me I am doing awesome!! I have some very exciting news to share with you! Remember that position that I was telling you about the last time I saw you, it was the Program Manager position at the Child Care Resource Agency that you encouraged me to apply at well I finally got that interview, so now I am proud to says that I am the new Program Manager for that agency. I am so excited for this new journey because this agency has so much to offer and I am finally there to be a part of it. This program provides so much for low income families with assisting with childcare and also provides early child education and development which is also known as Head Start. Head Start provides children that with an opportunity that they would not otherwise have the chance to have if the program did not exist. This program evaluates the problems and the needs assessment in the community. The theory that they have in place for the program is very effective which will help these families and the community as well to have a solid foundation. The evaluative research is bound to provide such great outcomes for the program, their descriptive research will provide such a great standard for the service delivery model. Sorry for all the excitement but knowing how effective the new inputs of the structure and outputs for the new service for the community I cannot help but express how excited I am!! Thank you for the support and believing in me with that I would have probably never applied and for that I will be forever grateful. Thank you and I hope we can celebrate sometime…...

Organization *(Knowledge) 5. Control *(Knowledge) 6. Ability to plan *(Knowledge) 7. Positive attitude *(Value) 8. Sense perspective *(Value) 9. Respect *(Value) 10. Trust *(Value) I believe that a manager is very important for many different reasons. All of the characteristics that I listed above will help a company. First it is important to have a personal vision in order to motivate others to work for you and your company. When the vision is to be at the top, you need to have a plan and be very organized. All of your employees need you to help them do their jobs correctly, so a manager has to always be sure that there is a plan to help their employees and help them be successful within the company. Since managers have a lot of responsibilities and not very much time but they need also be efficient. Managers tend to have very little time, and so it is important that they keep their time organized and do as much as they can in the small amount of time that they have. Control is something that is important to many managers, because no one can keep an entire company running if they cannot control what is happening within the company. Someone always has to be in control and it should be the manager otherwise, complete chaos can and will happen. Good managers also keep a sense of understanding...

...Latasha Thomas February 8, 2013 HSM 270 Greg Moore Looking into a program and trying to locate its strengths and weaknesses before it gets out of hand is essential for a program to operate smoothly. Some may feel that there is nothing wrong with a program until they take a closer look into it. One small flaw can take a whole program down with it. It is vital to stay on top of all aspects of the program. Asking a few simple questions like, what is going wrong, what could be better, what needs to be fixed now, and what can wait, can help a program thrive. Finding a problem before it is a problem can help a program save funds, and the integrity of the program. Let’s say that a program has a computer program and only 4 to 5 of the people in the office use this program because they do not know how to use it. Is the problem with the computer program or the training required to operate the computer program? I believe the problem lies with the proper training of the staff. If the business did not perform an Evaluation they would have never been the wiser about this problem. This computer program was emplemented to help save the staff time, and document the client’s information. Evaluation includes whatever ways you can find to think about what you've done, what is going wrong, what could be better, what needs to be fixed now, and what can wait....

...1. Livingston made some mistakes initially. Describe at least two of them and provide how you would handle the situations. Livingston did make a critical mistake initially of choosing the project manager from a different department. So that was one of the mistakes that he had made. With choosing a project manager, from a different department Livingston is looking at possible resentment arising from of all functional departments. Although Livingston’s did make the right move of appointing a project manager to help in improved cost and control management, however, it did not necessarily go about appointing the project manager in the right manner and may face resentment. Another problem that Livingston had was communication problems, the company will also have to deal with having two same but separate computer systems running simultaneously. This double work can lead to miscommunication between sections of the company and may create more problems obtaining government contracts in the short run. The EDP manager did however identify that this would be a problem early on and having two systems could not be helped 2. How do you think the functional employees feel? Support how you might feel if you were in their position by citing points from the case study? As I stated in the earlier question functional employees may feel resentment to the new project manager for the hiring of outside the normal department. The functional employees may also feel that the modified matrix structure...

I process, in these six different ways to departmentalize, each has its very own unique way of precisely targeting the necessary criteria which could be by program, by function, by market, by consumer/client, or by geographical area. In order to be successful with each type of departmentalization, the board must effectively and precisely pinpoint its general area of need and what it will take to be successful in terms of assistance in these particular areas. Matrix organizations are kinds of structures that a categorized flexible and responsive and are characterized by employees having more than one supervisor and in order for them to perform at their highest level of productivity, they must have some area of expertise that is disciplined.

Requesting for someone to tell me about themselves. I would hope to get them to open up, so that I can understand who they are.

I would want them to express to me what they plan for the future and where they might see themselves further in life.

...10 Characteristics for Effective Management April Flory HSM220 April 25, 2014 Susan Anderson 10 Characteristics for Effective Management Having a good understanding of the organization’s vision is important because you will want to move the company into that direction. In addition, a person will want to know what the vision is because it may go against their beliefs. Having good communication skills is important to be able to effectively communicate the vision statement to others, such as employees or community. In addition, as a manager a person will have to effectively communicate what needs to be done in order to follow the vision. Having good communication skills is knowledge-centered. Any situation needs someone that can look at it from all sides to find the best solution for all involved. Becoming a critical thinker is a learned trait, knowledge-centered. A well-organized manager can get more work done and in the long run that can save money for the organization. Saving money for the organization means more money that can be spent on needed items, or even opening up a new department. Organization skills can come naturally, but it is not a value, so knowledge-centered. Analyzing data will allow them to continually improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization. Analyzing data is a skill that needs to be learned, knowledge-centered. If a manager is going to get employees to do the work they are assigned to do they will need to know how......

...Scenario 1: Violence Prevention in a High-Risk Community After reading scenario 1, I would have to say tertiary prevention was used to help the battered woman with efforts to reduce the damage that the enraged man may have inflicted on her. Many battered women come to believe they deserve to be beaten, or they believe they cannot make it in life without the person that is battering them or even believe they could never get anyone other than the abuser. Using tertiary prevention would be the right strategy to use in this situation because sending her to a shelter with classes in self esteem, parenting, job training and placement will give her back the self esteem that her abuser took from her. Yes, I think tertiary prevention is the right strategy for this scenario, but safe housing would be included after the completion of the program. Scenario 2: Closure of a Planned Parenthood Clinic Scenario 2 used primary prevention, providing limited family planning services will allow the community to learn how to prevent more unintended pregnancies and slow down the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, although that is not mentioned in the readings. I believe the strategy used in this scenario can be effective, but I do not think limited family planning will be enough to educate the teens, so they understand the complications and financial burdens that's associated with having children that......

...Program Planning and Grant Proposal Writing in Human Services HSM/270 Shelley Johnson Feb 15,2015 Alternative Funding Traditional funding through government agencies and corporations who donate to organizations and agencies is becoming harder and more competitive to attain; more organizations are relying on them when less money is available. The economic conditions are making it hard for more tradition funding methods to bring in enough revenue to match the amount of grants requested. More and more agencies are turning to non-traditional sources to generate the income they need to keep their programs operating. Even those sources are becoming more difficult to find, but with a little work and a lot of creative talent they can be found. The Santa Rosa Philharmonic Youth Symphony (SRPYS) is no different than other organizations that strive to provide a human service to a target population. In this case, the population is the youth of the Santa Rosa and surrounding areas that appreciate music and want to further their musical education. The local schools have lost funding for their music program and this organization wants to help pick up the deficit by offering a program to allow students to continue their education. The funding is all that is necessary since the agency already exists, has a facility, and has staffing which can work with students; the budget to run the additional program is the stalling point to the inception of the program.
