Introduction

Management Planning David J Knox MGT/330 April 10, 2010 Matthew Handlon Management Planning Management planning is essential for a company like Boeing due to its massive and complicated structure.

In example, the manufacturing department can formulate specific plans that will be used to create stations for assembly within the plants.

Operational planning's similar to tactical planning; the difference is that Operational planning deals with low level managers within the company. These low level managers ensure tasks are being executed properly by non manager employees. These managers also take charge of quality control for the all the physical operation the business has to offer.
