From the Paper:

"However, managers today without an established solid and strategic company plan will eventually steer the company into a rather bleak and misfortunate future; planning prepares managers with alternative measures intact to compensate for future market changes or the ever-changing global economy of today. Planning, in fact, establishes contingency measures and permits flexibility to better handle these changes or unforeseen events. This way, managers who have experienced these differences in business are able to think faster, and they are more prepared to the handle these particular situations when they occur."
