Levels of PPC
Strategic Planning(Long range): It is the process of thinking through the organization’s mission and environment and setting a guide for future decisions and results. e.g. Technology forecasting and choice of appropriate technology for the long-range time horizon.
Tactical Planning(Intermediate Range): It is done over an intermediate term or medium range time horizon by middle-level management. These plans focus on aggregate products rather than individual products.
