Conventional planning methods often do not suffice for complex institutions such as health systems and development projects, and this book introduces the practice of facilitated participatory planning (FPP), a new way of planning for a world that is multifaceted, competitive, and ever changing. The authors argue that involving all the key stakeholders in the process makes for a trustworthy, inclusive, balanced, and dynamic planning system. This analysis charts the evolution of FPP from pioneer concepts of awareness, empowerment, learning by doing, visualization, creative group processes, and incremental questions into a complete and up-to-date system of principles and techniques. It includes case studies that show how FPP has been used successfully where other planning methods have failed. Academics, researchers, and managers who require planning procedures that go beyond the hierarchical approach will find this to be an invaluable resource.
