Good Plan = Great Success: Planning Technical Activities

For a plain and simple language, planning is thinking ahead. Planning is a tool not only for organization but also for every individual to know what to do, how to do it, when to do it and what to expect in the future. A plan serves as a useful guide in the implementation of every activity. The nature of planning  is to have a plan that provides a methodical way of achieving desired results. Without the plan, some minor tasks may be afforded major attention that may, hinder the accomplishment of objectives. Planning defined by Nickels and others: refers to “the management function that involves anticipating future trends and determining the best strategies and tactics to achieve organizational objectives.” For Aldag and Stearns, planning is the “the selection and sequential ordering of tasks required to achieve an organizational goal.” Cole and Hamilton gave a definition of planning as “deciding what will be done, who will do it, where, when and how it will be done, and the standards to which it will be done.”  To give you another idea of what is planning, you may watch this video.

Classical Greek philosophers considered intellectual exercises, like contemplation, as the highest form of activity.
