Conclusion Action-oriented management of projects and corporate initiatives requires continuous planning that supports data-driven decisions. Those involved must have immediate access to reliable information. Annual planning, even with quarterly updates, is insufficient in today’s dynamic business environment. Continuous planning enables more flexible management with greater accountability. It promotes innovation, faster time to market and wiser resource allocation. Continuous planning requires software that facilitates communication, automates time-consuming tasks, simplifies project and financial planning and easily integrates short- and long-term plans.
