CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

 

  1. Background of the Study

Planning and forecasting are two sides of a coin that an organization that wants to be successful must imbibe. There are needed in the achievement of an organizational goals and objectives.

Planning is the process that involves going through the current activities of an organization, checking lapses that occurred in the previous year and setting measures to avoid them in subsequent years. It involves mapping out the goals an organization wants to achieve in a year, ways to achieve such goals and the necessary resources to achieve them. It is the first step a manager must take in deciding what to do and how to go about it.

Planning takes an organization to where it wants to be in the nearest future. In planning, the past and present state of an organization is considered in other to bounce back better and stronger.

Forecasting involves looking into the future by noting the available resources, making an estimate of the resources required and considering if more hands will be needed in achieving the organization’s goals (Needle, 1999: p178).

Forecasting is carried out when an organization wants to look into what the future would be like; in order to put necessary measures in place. An organization can be effective if it can predict its environment, identify problems and solve them (Steiner, 1979).

Planning and forecasting are vital tools needed in an organization for performing management functions and in decision making to ensure all departments of the organization functions well. Planning and forecasting walk hand in hand, as forecasting helps unify and coordinate plans.

 

 

  1. Statement of the Problem

Organizations that fail to plan, plan to fail. Organizations that wait for rainy days are bound to crumble as this is evident in many organizations today.

Many organizations fail because of the notion that planning and forecasting should center on a part of an organization.

In addition, some business organizations crash due to poor timing of planning and forecasting.
