An ideal planning system is one that is not time consuming, easy to do, aids your job performance and drives overall organizational success.
In most organizations, planning comes in three forms:
- A multi–year plan. Or it could be called the strategic plan, or the long-term plan, or simply the organization’s strategy;
- The annual work plan, or business plan, or operational plan; and
- The budget
When things are working well these three planning processes are integrated and reinforcing.
The chart below provides a quick assessment of the multi-year planning.
For each row, place a check mark beside the description that best reflects your situation.
