PUB: Pathfinder Intl- Straight to the Point: Identifying and Prioritizing Behavior Change Needs

Publisher: Pathfinder International
Date of publication: January 2013

4 FEBRUARY 2013 – PARTHFINDER – The “Straight to the Point” capacity building tool introduces the concept of budgeting to community-based organizations with limited resources and financial management experience, and leads them through the process of creating a simple budget.

Organizations and groups can use this tool to guide a group activity with members of the community they work with in order to identify the major barriers to adopting a specific healthier behaviour and to prioritize which barriers should be addressed first.

Taking into consideration implementers' limited time and human and financial resources, the tools in Pathfinder's Straight to the Point Series provide clear, concise guidance on a variety of issues related to organizational management and program design, implementation, and assessment.

The Straight to the Point tools do not replace extensive, in-depth evaluations and guidance, but rather offer an easier, more direct way of improving programs and launching new activities.
