How does the Planning Process Evolve during the Project?

This segment of the flowchart shows the evolution of the planning process over the course of the project. The evolution is: initial response actions (first 24 hours or longer), initial planning cycle (next two to seven days or longer), and the Daily Planning Cycle (continued until project completion). Emergency initial response is generally reactive and does not allow time for iterative planning. These initial response actions must be preplanned and drilled to be effective. The Iinitial Planning Cycle defines problems and potential solutions moving the team from reactive response to proactive planning. The Daily Planning Cycle is defined and implemented during the Initial Planning Cycle.
