This new textbook in development planning aims to provide a comprehensive and practically relevant guide to strategic planning at postgraduate and practitioner level. The book will help bridge the unfortunate gap that now exists between much development planning theory and planning practice. Promoting a more value-based, action-centered and organization-inclusive approach to development planning than is normally presented in textbooks on planning, the book introduces a simple model of strategic planning, and then elaborates more complex arrangements. The author then operationalizes various aspects and processes of planning, and critically analyzes tools involved, always in the context of more fundamental planning concerns. Specific topics include logical framework analysis, the use of indicators, process planning schemas, principles and tools of prioritization, and dimensions of participation and community institution building.
