Abstract
This research focuses on project planning using ZOPP which is planning based on the objectives. The principle of ZOPP is, if the project’s objectives are clear and correct, it will result in better processes and results. The purposes of this research were as follows, 1) to develop a training package for project planning on the ZOPP model using participatory action methodology through Google Apps, and 2) to evaluate the appropriateness of the developed training package. The research procedures consisted of 3 phases as, phase I : synthesize the model of project planning on the ZOPP using participatory action methodology through Google Apps by in-depth interviews from 5 experts, phase II : develop the training package for project planning on the ZOPP model using participatory action methodology through Google Apps, and phase III : evaluate the appropriateness of the developed training package using questionnaires from 5 experts. The results revealed that the synthesized model consisted of 4 modules as follows, 1) Project planning on the ZOPP Module, which compounded on 2 parts as, 1.1) ZOPP Module for project planning on the ZOPP covering 3 phases : Analysis Phase, Project Planning Matrix Phase, and Plan of Operations Phase, 1.2) Participatory Module of group work on the ZOPP was comprised of 4 methods : Mind Map writing, Three-Step Interviews, Buzz Group, and Gantt Chart writing, 2) Robert E. Stake Evaluation Module for project evaluation was used which focused on the 3 following aspects : Antecedents, Transaction, and Outcome Parts. And the developed training package through Google Apps consisted of 5 topics, 1) Introduction to project planning, 2) Project planning on the ZOPP, 3) Analysis phase, 4) Project planning matrix phase, and 5) Plan of operations phase. The appropriateness of the developed training package from 5 experts was found to be at a high level. In conclusion, this can be used to develop training packages for targeted groups properly.
