Jerusalem Water Undertaking (JWU):
Without clear direction, organizations react to current circumstances. Like a person on a treadmill, they move but they don't get anywhere. Proactive organizations anticipate problems and fix them before they happen. They recognize opportunities and take advantage of them. They choose their actions. They do not let circumstances do it for them. They plan ahead.
This chapter covers planning approaches, building from strategic analysis
and planning (Chapter 6) to Annual Planning
with its links to budgeting. This chapter also discusses Emergency Planning.
The examples include a draft planning policy, a draft annual plan table
of contents and selections from the Jerusalem Water Undertaking Crisis
Management Plan. The exercises can help you assign priorities to projects
so that you can allocate scarce resources effectively.
