The Planning Cycle: A Planning Process For Middle-Sized Projects
Source: Mind Tools
The Planning Cycle brings together all aspects of planning into a coherent, unified process. By planning within this structure, you will help to ensure that your plans are fully considered, well focused, resilient, practical and cost-effective. You will also ensure that you learn from any mistakes you make, and feed this back into future planning and Decision Making. Planning using this cycle will help you to plan and manage ongoing projects up to a certain level of complexity - this will depend on the circumstance.
