New guide on city management stresses goals.

The Coalition to Improve Management in State and Local Government, an NLC sponsored research and planning organization, has announced the release of its latest management guide: Improving Management in Cities and Towns: Implementing Goals and Standards.

A joint project of the Coalition and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), the booklet is organized in three parts. Parts A and B provide the practice steps to setting goals during the budget process and explain the importance of using performance standards. Part C is a resource list of organizations for local government management. The guide comes with a workbook: Standards for Effective Local Government: A Performance Assessment Workbook for Small Cities and Towns.

The project was funded in part by the Lilly Endowment and the Nord Family Foundation.

The cost for the guide is $15 and the workbook is $25. Prices include postage and handling. To order the guide or for more information, call (412) 268-2179, fax (412) 268-7036 or write the Coalition to Improve Management in State and Local Governments, c/o School of Urban and Public Affairs, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pa. 15213.
