Topics considered in the document include the scope of the planning process, who should be involved in planning, the organization required for planning, the planning process, evaluation and accountability, recordkeeping, communication, and errors planners should avoid. The appendix suggests ways to outfit a planning room to facilitate good planning. (Author/DN)
