I'm a 74 year old retired planning engineer, I was one of the planners on the Alaskan Pipeline and the Apollo Program. As far as planning goes, I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Please understand I'm totally behind what this group is doing. Putting together a good plan is no easy task. So I offer the following advise: The first step is identifying goals and objectives. The next step is identifying activities required to meet those goals and objectives, the time durations and who is going to do them. The next step is to combine all the required activities in the proper sequence. You now have a workable plan and schedule. The final step is to monitor and revise it, as required. Now if you don't have a plan, you end up with people working at cross purposes with each other.
