The Prison Industries (P.I.) division of the Indiana State Department of Correction presented the challenge of a business function that must be carried out to achieve policy goals established by the legislature. The legal constraints imposed upon P.I. present barriers unique to the regular business community, and yet, analysis of conventional business planning provides a starting point for an analysis of P.l's plan and its implementation, and provides a guide for posing alternative plans. The Pendleton Reformatory was chosen for observation of P.I. in operation and its relation to the prison as an institution.
