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.

Book Description:

Step-by-step guide to the strategic choice approach pioneered and perfected by author team

From the Publisher:

When 'Planning Under Pressure' appeared in 1987, it was the first mature exposition of the Strategic Choice Approach. Since then, the approach has been gathering support among decision makers, while also becoming widely taught in management, planning, and policy schools. The second edition reflects the diverse range of contexts in which the Strategic Choice Approach is now put to work: management, urban planning, public policy making, community action, and sustainable development in third world countries. New material includes a chapter on the role of software, and coverage of recent theoretical advances.
