Abstract : The thesis describes the application of modern managerial concepts and analytical techniques - represented by Planning, Programming, and Budgeting - to a small semi-public, participative, non-governmental organization. After describing and analyzing the organization's operations, activities and alternative futures, the report describes a grouping of its activities into objective-oriented programs with expenses, income, effectiveness measures and 'out-puts' related to each program. The design, development, and inauguration of a computer based system for data collection and billing is explained as well as a proposed management prediction model. It concludes with an appraisal of their relevance and usefulness to the organization's Board of Directors as aids in the making of rational and wise decisions regarding anticipated choices in the near and further future.
