PAA 102 Organizational Planning and Budget Process

Course Descriptions:This course examines organizations from three perspectives, as closed, natural and open systems. It will help students to understand better the relationships among organizational structure, organization functions, and individual and budget process. Behavioral forces and their implications will be addressed as students are exposed to concepts of power, control and change within appropriate contexts. Since organizational structures are mainly a function of their budget process, this course will be devoted to topics in public budgeting, finance and financial management. These activities play a central role in public management of various organizational settings. The intent of this course is to understand the role these activities play in local, state, and federal governments and to see how policy and management are shaped and influenced by budgets, financial reports and tax policy.
