1.1            BACKGROUND OF STUDY

In order for an organization to thrive succeed in its environment of operation and achieve its set objectives and goals, there exist fundamental environmental forces that influence management decision making (formulation and implementation of policy) process.

Planning helps organization define their purpose and activities. All managers at various levels in the organization plan. Planning is one of the important managerial functions.
