IMPORTANCE OF PLANNING TO BUSINESS

Many studies support the idea that the organization who plans before starting a project or a business venture, retail business e.g road side mechanic, barbing, hairdressing retail business auto-wash, beauty salon, tailoring, ad-infinitum are more effective than those who do not plan.
The planning functions have several important goals and chiefly among these goals are discussed as follows;

1. changes in technological environment

In this view, it logically follows that alternative sources of business finance should be sought for. This can only be possible through planning....

4.changes in the need of the society
As earlier said business makes demand on society and society make demands on business. At this instances it logically follows that, the business exists because of the existence of the society and vice versa' But society's attitudes towards the business is what matters. Attitude of the society to the business is unpredictable as lifestyle, belief pattern etc are not the same and may change at any time, particularly when the activities of the business did not favor them. Planning will ensure positive attitude of the society members towards the business enterprise.
