Our Changing Concept of Planning.
Ackoff, Russell L.
Journal of Nursing Administration, v12 n10 p35-40 Oct 1982
The author describes an approach to planning that differs from conventional concepts. This approach, called interactive or proactive planning, deals with interdependent problems and pursues goals, objectives, and ideals. Emphasizing that ideals play the key role in interactive planning, Ackoff contrasts this approach with prevailing planning concepts. (Author/CT)
