Defining Goals and objectives.
Obtaining clear statements of goals and objectives is difficult, butimportant. Ideally, tourism development goals should flow from more generalcommunity goals and objectives. It is important to understand how a tourismplan serves these broader purposes. If tourism is identified as a means of servingbroader community goals, it makes sense to develop plans with more specifictourism development objectives. These are generally defined through acontinuing process in which various groups and organizations in a communitywork together toward common goals. A local planning authority, chamber of commerce, visitor’s bureau, or similar group should assume a leadership role todevelop an initial plan and obtain broad involvement of tourism interests in thecommunity. Public support for the planning process and plan is also important.In the early stages of tourism development, goals may involveestablishing organizational structures and collecting information to better identifythe tourism System in the community. Later, more precise objectives can beformulated and more specific development and marketing strategies evaluated.
Identifying Your Tourism System
When planning for any type of activity, it is important to first define itsscope and characteristics. Be clear about exactly what your plan encompasses. A good initial question is, "What do you mean by tourism?" Tourism is defined inmany ways. Generally, tourism involves people traveling outside of theircommunity for pleasure. Definitions differ on the specifics of how far peoplemust travel, whether or not they must stay overnight, for how long, and whatexactly is included under traveling for "pleasure". Do you want your tourism planto include day visitors, conventioneers, business travelers, people visiting friendsand relatives, people passing through, or seasonal residents?Which community resources and organizations serve tourists or could servetourists? Generally, tourists share community resources with local residents andBusinesses. Many organizations serve both tourists and locals. This complicatestourism planning and argues for a clear idea of what your tourism plan entails.We can begin to clarify the tourism system by breaking It down into threesubsystems:(1) Tourism resources,(2) Tourism organizations, and(3) Tourism markets. An initial task in developing a tourism plan is to identify, inventory, and classifythe objects within each of these subsystems.
