Plans Are Useless, But Planning is IndispensableBefore he became the 34th President of the United States, General Dwight D. Eisenhower served as Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Europe during World War II. He may have known a thing or two about risk in that role. But Eisenhower was not a man to lay out a plan and then let it collect dust on a shelf. In fact, he said, "In preparing for battle, I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable." He found that the act of planning in itself was the true value of the activity.
