Known for encouraging step-by-step problem solving and for connecting techniques to real-world scenarios, David Ammonsa Tools for Decision Making covers a wide range of local government practicesafrom the foundational to the advanced. Brief and readable, each chapter opens with a problem in a hypothetical city and then introduces a tool to address it. Thoroughly updated with new local government examples, the second edition also incorporates chapters devoted to such additional techniques as sampling analysis, sensitivity analysis, financial condition analysis, and forecasting via trend analysis. Numerous tables, figures, exhibits, equations, and worksheets walk readers through the application of tools, and boxed features throughout each chapter present other uses for techniques, helpful online resources, and common errors. A handy guide for students and an invaluable resource and reference for practitioners. Students can visit college.cqpress.com/TDM for more opportunities to put these tools to use.
