The Planning Process: Formulation of Objectives and the Building of Consent

By Alex Rosen

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1963

The author explores the components of successful social planning by comparing planning in the social work context to physical planning, such as urban/city planning, and further discusses the values, purpose, sanction, knowledge, and methods of social planning. The author defines community planning as the art of building consensus within a democratic framework. The social work profession, however, has not yet come to grips with community power structures, and therefore has sub-optimal capacity to build consensus, the author argues.
