Planning, organisation and management skills

Planning, organisation and management skills

Planning and organising are a power couple! Although they are different skills, they go hand in hand, and when combined, a super skill is born! Without planning and organising, there would be chaos.

Good planning and organizing skills include:

  • setting achievable long-, medium- and short-term goals;
  • defining priorities;
  • developing necessary strategies and action plans;
  • adapting to unforeseen changes.

Planning is deciding in advance what needs to be done, who is going to do it, how, and when.
It is the process of thinking something through before implementing, or organizing, it. For successful planning, you need to consider past events as well as future opportunities—and possible impending threats to your plan. Planning therefore involves predicting future behavior of your business environment and defining your own desired role.
