Planning provide directions and reduces the risk for uncertainty. Explain?
The planning process clearly defines and maps out the guidelines for the smooth operations
of a business in order to achieve its main goals/objectives. By stating in advance how
work is to be done, planning provides direction to action. It ensures that objectives /goals
are clearly stated so that they act as a guide for deciding what action should be taken
and in which direction
Planning enables a manager to look ahead and anticipate changes. By deciding in advance
the task to be performed, planning shows the way to deal with changes and uncertain
events. Thus, planning helps to reduce the risks of uncertainty by preparing forecasts.
