The Role of Research in Federation and Agency Planning: A Critical Analysis

By Martin M. Cohn

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1965

Seeking to explore the optimal role for research within the planning process of Jewish Federations and social services agencies, the author first explores possible definitions for the terms in question, since research, planning, social science, and other related activities are often confused and conflated. He outlines different types of research, and the relationships between research, planning and administration. The author then turns to the question of who should perform various types of research (e.g. universities, federations, agencies).
