Thumbs up Planning and its Nature - October 1st, 2009

Planning in organizations the organizational process of creating and maintaining a plan; and the psychological process of thinking about the activities required to create a desired goal on some scale. As such, it is a fundamental property of intelligent behavior. This thought process is essential to the creation and refinement of a plan, or integration of it with other plans, that is, it combines forecasting of developments with the preparation of scenarios of how to react to them.
The term is also used to describe the formal procedures used in such an endeavor, such as the creation of documents diagrams, or meetings to discuss the important issues to be addressed, the objectives to be met, and the strategy to be followed. Beyond this, planning has a different meaning depending on the political or economic context in which it is used.
Two attitudes to planning need to be held in tension: on the one hand we need to be prepared for what may lie ahead, which may mean contingencies and flexible processes. On the other hand, our future is shaped by consequences of our own planning and actions.

Characterstics of Planning


1-Goal-oriented.
2-Basic to all managerial functions.
3-Pervasive.
4-Interdependent process.
5-Future-oriented.
6-Forecasting integral to planing.
7-Continuous process.
8-Intellectual process.
9-Integrating process.
10-Planning and control are inseparable.
11-Choice Among Alternative Courses Of Action.
12-Flexible process .
