Planning and organizing skills are almost always related to efficiency and productivity. Superior planning and organizing skills are required to accomplish a project or a job with a minimum expenditure of time and effort. If a firm has become more efficient, therefore it has become more productive and vice versa. An organization values employees with very good planning and organizing skills. Planning skills involve one’s natural ability to conceive, develop and implement plans with the purpose of accomplishing either short or long term goals. The planning process evidently is the proof of how planning skills are utilized. In the planning process, opportunities for improvement are identified. The planning process not only brings about structure, but it also builds in order and direction. The planning process is focused on setting goals and achieving objectives. It is results oriented and not activity oriented. However in high risk areas, building a safety net should always be a part of the planning process because as we know it, there is no such thing as a perfect plan. Therefore the ability to take quick action to identify and resolve the cause of any problem is still a part of the planning process. Organizing skills focuses on identifying possibilities, identifying critical tasks, setting priorities, keeping accurate records, estimating time, effort and resources needed to accomplish a task, as well as the ability to multi-task and use calendars, Gantt charts and To Do lists. Moreover, flexibility and the ability to work well with other people are needed to be an effective organizer. Planning and organizing skills enables people to accomplish specific results and organizations to continually attain success.
