Discussion Topic

Post a total of 3 substantive responses/replies over 2 separate days for full participation. This includes your initial response and 2 replies to other students or the instructor. 

Due Thursday 7/14/22)

Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words: 

  • Provide an example of a time when you or someone you know has been involved in participatory planning. What were the benefits and drawbacks of the participatory planning process (not on the outcome of whatever may have been decided)? 

Ensure that the response has a specific example of involvement in participatory planning, along with any benefits or drawbacks. The example should be work related from a current or former employer/organization. Participants in the process and the participatory process itself should be discussed. The is a difference between participatory planning and a participatory event. The reposnse should be about participatory planning only. 

As a guide to responding to this topic, Schermerhorn and Bachrach state that “participatory planning includes the stakeholders who will be affected by plans and/or who will be asked to implement them.” It is not just management planning where managers make decisions and then dictate who will carry them out and how they will do them. Team projects are also not participatory planning, as they are tasks that the teams are assigned to accomplish. While groups and teams collaborate, they are not doing participatory planning. All the stakeholders (at least some representatives of each group) have to be involved in the planning process. I would suggest reading the material about participatory planning again, including looking at Figure 4.3. in the text.

Due Monday (7/18/22)

Reply to at least two of your classmates or the instructor. Be constructive and professional in your responses.

Full participation requires postings on at least two days during the class week.
