There are several management planning approaches that an organisation should engage in if it must successfully and effectively accomplish organisational objectives. As a humanitarian aid organization, we couldn’t equally be less intentional.
Besides this being a top management responsibility that provides a clear direction to the organisational workforce requiring a specific departmental response, there is an aspect of it that can be generated across the organisational board. In this context, it is called Humanitarian response strategy. This is a coherent set of programme activities designed to achieve a specific goal or set of objectives. We have this well laid out.
This planning provides guiding information on performance standards, operations or task timelines as well as rewards for certain results achieved while executing corporate objectives. This level of planning equally seeks to synchronise position and authority required to implement goals so that there is no confusion over operational control and the person with the onus.
It is most effective in SWOT Analysis because it helps decision makers to have complete knowledge of the immediate work environment as it relates to all resources available for the conversion of goals into results for the organisation, including its human resources.
This plan is developed to cover or mitigate problems with the most significant threat perhaps as a result of a negative happenstance event. At CFAN, we are fully armed with tools and instruments to be able to avert or manage these environmental risks. In consideration to the above planning approaches, at CNAF, we are intentional about every milestone we desire to cover through effective planning. With this we can boast of a greater guarantee for success.
