In an organisation, planning may be both formal and informal in nature. Informal
planning takes place when a manager plans institutively without any structure or rigid
framework while formal planning involves a structured process of investigation and
action. Whatever be the form of planning, it is to be noted that planning is essentially
future-oriented and a goal-oriented behaviour. It is also the first step of the managerial
decision –making process and precedes all other managerial functions i.e., organising,
leading and controlling.
