Analytical Skills for Community Organization Practice
This guide promotes the use of analytical skills in community
organization practice, including information gathering and
processing, legislative research, needs assessment, participatory
action research, political analysis, population forecasting and
social indicator analysis, power analysis, program development and
planning, resource development, budgeting, and grant writing,.
These analytical methods, often used in practice but seldom
systematically discussed, assist the practitioner in identifying
community problems, planning interventions, and conducting
evaluations. The text explicates a problem-solving model that
identifies concepts and theories underlying practice, methods for
problem identification and assessment, and techniques for goal
setting, implementation, and evaluation. It features extensive
listings of Web sites for community organization practice and is
dedicated to the idea that the community organizer, to be truly
effective, must be prepared to be an active learner.
