Title: FAQs on Guidelines for Extension Program Business Planning
Authors: Morse, George W.
Authors (Email): Morse, George W. (morse001@umn.edu)
Issue Date: 2012-06
Series/Report no.: Staff Paper
P12-5
Abstract: This staff paper, written primarily for Extension administrators, addresses frequently asked questions about the business planning process and complements the four page Guidelines for Extension Program Business Planning (Notes # 2011-1). The length (17 pages of text and 9 of glossary, appendices, references and notes) of this staff paper implies the guidelines are extremely prescriptive. On the contrary, as the FAQs explain, the guidelines provide broad parameters and follow the maxim that if you want something adopted, keep it as simple as possible. A key focus of the FAQs is to help administrators see the value of allowing program teams great flexibility in the specific components of their program business plan and their planning process.
