Planning is an anticipatory decision making process that involves situation analysis, forecasting outcomes and events, evaluating alternative courses of action, anticipating consequences and considering implementation issues and contingencies.

Featured Planning Tip

Keep it simple

Prepare clear, uncomplicated plans and clear, concise orders to ensure thorough understanding.

If your enemy is superior, evade him. If angry, irritate him. If you are equally matched or stronger, fight, and if you are weaker split and reevaluate -- Sun-tzu.

Apply the KISS principle! The KISS principle is a popularized rule of conduct often invoked when discussing planning and design processes as a reminder to avoid unnecessary complexity. The traditional expansion of this acronym is "Keep it Simple, Stupid".

"In critical and baffling situations, it is always best to return to first principles and simple action" - Sir Winston S. Churchill

Business forecasting and planning should involve an understandable process. Do not use complex forecasting tools and sophisticated mathematics.
