Voluntary organizations are better suited to devote their efforts to foster steady growth in the rural areas. Study has been undertaken in 17 voluntary organizations each in Nabarangpur and Kandhamal districts of Odisha during the year 2014 to access the extent of extension management approaches particularly on planning, empowerment, information system, coordination, supervision, accountability, programme implementation and control process. The findings revealed that 23.25 to 43% gaps were observed on different aspects of functioning. Better management approaches were prevailed on planning and coordination. Similarly, weaker approaches prevailed on accountability and information system. Socio-personal characteristics of the staffs had not much influence in increasing their capabilities. The voluntary organizations have to analyze their management approaches prevailed, assess weaknesses and take appropriate measures to strengthen the extension management system for successful implementation of programmes.
