What are the different types of plans that organizations can use? What types of plans does your organization use and why?
Plans commit individuals, departments, organizations, and the resources of each to specific actions for the future. [ Effectively designed organizational goals fit into a hierarchy so that the achievement of goals at low levels permits the attainment of high-level goals. This process is called a means-ends chain because low-level goals lead to accomplishment of high-level goals. An operational
plan is one that a manager uses to accomplish his or her job responsibilities. A tactical plan is concerned with what the lower level units within each division must do, how they must do it, and who is in charge at each level. A strategic plan is an outline of steps designed with the goals of the entire organization as a whole in mind, rather than with the goals of specific divisions or departments. Strategic planning begins with an organization's mission. Contingency planning involves identifying alternative courses of action that can be implemented if and when the original plan proves inadequate because of changing circumstances. The type of plan that i would use is tactical plan and the reason for that is becuase i like everything to be laid out and planned on who is going to do what, or what day and time i am going to get things done. It just works better for me if i have everything planned out ahead of time. Read more: ]
