Assignment 2: Program Design Elements
With the continuation of Assignment 2, it is important to notice and appreciate the congruity provided through systematic program planning and evaluation. A well-developed program design facilitates the alignment necessary for an effective intervention, enabling the program to address the problem through appropriate services that–ideally!–result in positive outcomes.
This week you further delineate your program design, crafting elements visually and creating a time line using a Gantt chart.
To prepare for this week’s section of Assignment 2:
By tomorrow Friday 01/04/19 by 6 pm
In APA format with a minimum of 6 scholarly references, write a 3- to 5-page paper and create accompanying documents that address the following level 1 and 2 headers:
1) Stakeholder Involvement in Developing Mission Statement, Goals, and Objectives (developed in Week 5)
a) Explain why it is important for representatives of your target population to be involved in developing the goals and objectives for the program.
b) Identify which stakeholders you would involve in the planning process and discuss two or more strategies for facilitating their involvement.
2) Program Design (developed this week 6, with elements developed in Week 5 [see week 6 discussion paper attached])
a) Create a visual representation of your program design (e.g., a table or graph) that includes the program’s mission statement, goal(s), objectives, and activities to meet the objectives (http://www.ganttchart.com/Examples.html)
b) Develop a Gantt chart with time lines for implementing all activities that will assist in meeting each of your program objectives.
P.S. Always include an introduction ending with a purpose statement and conclusion as required per APA format guidelines. Refer to previous attached papers in the file area to complete this assignment.

· Chapter 7, “Identifying and Writing Mission Statements, Goals, and Objectives”
The authors provide guidance for developing a mission statement, program goals, and objectives in this chapter.
Chapter 4 outlines the program planning steps and emphasizes the importance of including your target population and additional stakeholders in the design process. Chapter 5 reemphasizes this focus on the target audience as the authors discuss the use of marketing principles in relation to program development and implementation. Chapter 8 discusses the importance of utilizing strategies that are aligned with the theoretical foundations of a program and presents recommendations for developing suitable activities. In Chapter 9, the authors note that even implementation requires planning; they provide guidance for implementation planning and advise how this can also support evaluation.

· Chapter 7, “Setting Goals and Objectives”
Chapter 6 introduces the notion of developing the program hypothesis as a critical feature of program design and a precursor to setting goals and objectives, which is addressed in Chapter 7. Both of these topics serve as a critical link between the earlier phases of problem analysis and needs assessment and the forthcoming design of services and program evaluation.
Review Chapter 6, “Selecting the Appropriate Intervention Strategy”
Chapter 8, “Designing Effective Programs”
Review Chapter 6, which discusses the connection between the program hypothesis and service decisions. Chapter 8 addresses how to design elements of a program systematically in order to promote consistency and attend to the necessary details.
