1. Program planning involves: identifying the most critical needs of clientele, projecting needs of clientele, knowing our ability to respond to clientele needs, planning and delivering programs to address needs, evaluating the outcome of our efforts, and reporting that outcome back to partners, stakeholders, and constituents.
Program planning is the very essence of being an extension professional. Every extension professional, regardless of position, both responds to requests from the public and is proactive— taking the initiative to meet the needs of the public.
