Program Planning and Management  
 

Programme Planning is both the organizational process of creating and maintaining a plan; and the psychological process of thinking about the activities required to create a desired goal on some scale. Programme Planning is also a management function, concerned with defining goals for future organizational performance and deciding on the tasks and resources to be used in order to attain those goals. It is a conscious as well as sub-conscious activity. It is “an anticipatory decision making process” that helps in coping with complexities. It involves selection of missions, objectives and “translation of knowledge into action.” The planning function involves establishing goals and arranging them in logical order. Project management is the discipline of planning, organizing and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honouring the project constraints. The secondary and more ambitious challenge is to optimize the allocation and integration of inputs necessary to meet pre-defined objectives.
