  • Plan-as-you-go business planning AOM Annual 2008 www.timberry.com We’re all just human. Planning is predicting the future, we can’t do that well enough to be right in everything. The world changes. Assumptions change. Things happen. The misguided idea that the plan is supposed to correctly guess the future interferes with the real value of the business plan. It isn’t supposed to be right or accurate about the future Instead, it sets down plans as we see them now, along with related assumptions, so we can track the difference between plan and actual. Without a plan you could never track plan vs. actual.
