Impact of Strategic Planning on Organizational Productivity
What is Planning?
Akpala, Agwu (1990), states that planning establish the framework or boundaries within which people make decisions and carryout action in the future. It determines what is to be done in the future and to what end. He says that planning therefore, anticipates future events, problems and relationships and in this way it;
- develops a series of alternative approaches to guide action to wards desired goals, and then
- decides what to do it, and where to do it before action is taken.
