Ten years ago, the R.A.T.P. decided to reorganize its planning procedures to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing environment. The system which evolved has become an essential management tool both for external relations (consultations with the public authorities concerning the R.A.T.P.'s medium-term projects) and for internal organization (staff information and participation). The system embraces two quite distinct but interacting spheres: strategic planning and what is usually termed functional and operational planning (i.e. the drawing up of five-year action programmes in the various sectors). After describing how this decentralized and adaptable system evolved, the author describes the present state of R.A.T.P. corporate planning with particular emphasis on the consultation aspect.
