Planning Under Pressure: The Strategic Choice Approach (Urban and Regional Planning Series) by J. Friend, A. Hickling

This decision-centred approach has been widely hailed as a breakthrough in planning thought. It bridges the difficult gap between the aspirations of strategic planning and the realities of day-to-day management. The approach is specifically designed to help people plan under the familiar pressures of uncertainty, shortage of time, limited resources and conflicting interests. Since it first emerged from a pioneering study of British city government at work by operational researchers and social scientists, the approach has been applied to a wide range of organizational and interorganizational planning problems and has proved especially effective as an aid to interactive working in interdisciplinary groups throughout the world. This extensively illustrated book offers an authoritative, up-to-date guide to the subject. It is written not just as an introduction to the philosophy and techniques of strategic choice, but also as a handbook for quick reference by users. It includes illustrations from practical applications in several countries and will be invaluable not only to students of planning and academics, but also to practitioners working in any field of business management or public policy.
