Being successful does not usually happen by accident. It is generally acknowledged that following an overall plan plays a large part in the process.

Planning is the activity to get you from where you are now to where you want to be. It is an integral part of all work-related activities and consists of analysing your current situation, deciding on your objectives, plotting your action and then getting on with it.

This book helps you to get to grips with planning.

‘Planning is the compass that helps you determine what needs to be done today to make it more likely that your aims and objectives are achieved tomorrow. With a plan you have greater control, make things happen and are more likely to achieve that elusive prize – success.’

Kate Keenan is a Chartered Occupational Psychologist with degrees in affiliated subjects (B.Sc., M.Phil.) and a number of qualifications in others. She founded Keenan Research, an industrial psychology consultancy, in 1978. The work of the consultancy is fundamentally concerned with helping people to achieve their potential and make a better job of their management. By devising work programmes for companies she enables them to target and remedy their managerial problems - from personnel selection and individual assessment to team building and attitude surveys. She believes in giving priority to training the managers to institute their own programmes, so that their company resources are developed and expanded. She enjoys attending meetings but confesses to a certain degree of trepidation when running them. She finds that by forcing herself to focus on the pertinent issues, the meetings have a better than average rate of covering all the ground and finishing on time.
