PLANNING PROCESS AND ORGANIZATIONAL RESPONSIBILITY 2
DQ#1 - Planning Process
What are the steps in the planning process? Which step is the most crucial? Why?
The planning process is more of a decision making process. There are therefore formal
steps that must be followed. The first step is known as situational analysis. It involves the
gathering, interpretation and the summarizing of all the information that is relevant to issue that
is to be planned. The second step entails the alternative goals and plans. It is essential that
creativity is maintained in this second step to ensure that there will be an evaluation of the
different alternatives in reaching the ultimate goal. The management should also encourage the
workforce to bring a variety of ideas. The third step entails the evaluation of goals and plans.
They are evaluated in terms of the advantages and disadvantages. The goals that are essential
must be prioritized while others are eliminated. There should also be a consideration of the
implications that the alternative plans have on the goals that are ranked to be on high priority.
The fourth step is on goal and plan selection. This is done after the assessment of the goals and
the plans. The goal and the plan that meets the feasibility criteria is selected. This should be the
most appropriate goal and plan. A cost benefit analysis must be done in the selection process.
The fifth step entails the implementation of the selected goal and plan. The management must
ensure proper implementation with the proper resources. A plan that is to be linked with the
systems of the organization is essential for successful implementation. The final step is on
monitoring and control. The actual performance must be compared with the budgeted
performance in order to trace any deviations form the expected performance.
