Hope you've got your tools ready because after this course I bet you won't be less than a certified planner.
Firstly, what is a planning process?
Planning process is a step by step process of achieving a goal or project.

In planning process you set a goal, but before achieving the goal, you must set an objective to achieve the goal.

Goal -----> Objective -----> Monitoring State.

The most important stage in planning process is implementation and monitoring.

STAGES OF PLANNING PROCESS

Preliminary/Reconnaissance stage

Goal setting (most be one goal)

Objectives

Plans

Evaluation of plans

Implementation

Monitoring

So, the first step in site planning is to
1. Survey the area: Identify the way in which planning will be carried out, and check for any imbalance.

2. The formulation of broad community goal.

3. Identification of objective is a more precise way in which a goal might be achieved.

4. The possible alternative way of achieving the goal must be compiled and examined, the various difficulties in this stage include financial, legal, social or political difficulties.

5. This is the evaluation stage where the whole force of action are compared and measured, which is similar to sifting procedure - the selection of objective plane necessarily done using some approval techniques such as;
a) CBA - Cost Benefit Analysis
b) RFA - Rigorous Financial Approval
c) PERT - performance evaluation reviews technique
d) Goal achievement - this approach serves as a reminder that the evaluation should test and access performance of policies against the goal already established.

6. The chosen plan should be implemented or practiced.

7. Once the plan becomes operational, there will be need to scrutinize how it is working.
