Why Planning is Key

posted in: General 0

What is Planning?

Planning means analysing and studying the objectives, as well as the way in which we will achieve them. A process of organising your goals which involves decision making about desired ways and means to achieve these goals. It provides direction for action and ensures that goals and objectives are clearly defined so that they act as a guide for deciding what actions should be taken and in which direction.

Why is planning important?

It helps us achieve our goals and allows for more efficient use of time and other resources.

Pervasive
A continuous process

Recognizing the Advantages of Planning:

Provide guidelines for decision making
Serves as a prerequisite to employing all other management functions.

1) Idea:
Its starts with having an idea. Having an idea is important, without ideas progress is not possible, change does not happen…Therefore, the more ideas you have, the more you should expect to grow.

2) Analyse:
This involves collecting and analysing the information you will need to decide on a goal and purpose that is:
Relevant to your target community
Realistic in terms of what is possible and likely to make a difference; and
The most effective and appropriate contribution given the current situation you want to change.

3) Forecast:
This is a technique that uses collected data and inputs to make informed estimates that are predictive in determining the direction
of future trends. Forecasting can be used to determine how to allocate budgets or plan for anticipates expenses for an upcoming Civil Works for the Upgrading of the Kabale – Lake Bunyonyi and Kisoro – Mgahinga (33.5km) period of time.

These are the strategic measurable criteria that are used to evaluate objectives. By using the below method:
Develop objectives
Develop tasks to meet the objectives
Determine resources needed to implement tasks
Create timeline
Determine tracking and assessment method
Finalise plan
Distribute to all involved in the process

5) Implement:
This step involves detailed planning about how to / or how you will implement the strategies you have decided on. You will mostly use decisions about the most effective strategy to achieve each objective to decide:
What major activities will take place or will be needed
Who will be responsible
By When should activities be completed
What should be set and what specific resources will be needed for the activities required to achieve each strategy

6) Evaluate:
This step involves planning how you will determine your progress and what has been successfully achieved. This needs to be done at the. It also ensures that you have a clear and agreed basis for assessing what was actually achieved and your progress along the way. In this step you will use your needs  analysis and overall plan to finally decide:

  • What criteria or indicators you will use to  progress and achievements in relation to your purpose and specific objectives
  • When you will monitor progress and evaluate achievements
  • Where and from you will get the information you need
  • Who should be involved in monitoring progress and evaluating achievements; and
  • How you will collect the information you will need.

Once you have made these decisions, you will have completed the planning processing. Now all that is needed is to summarise your plan in a neat, clear and easy to use form so that it is a useful record and guide for all those who will play a part in implementing it successfully.

6 Beautiful Buildings in Durban

posted in: General 0

6 Beautiful Buildings in Durban

Often my colleagues and I would talk about a road trip to Durban as they would say….” Take us to your Mommas house”. But that has not happened due to the Pandemic. For now though, perhaps this 20-minute read will help you with a glimpse of what to expect?

Durban (Zulu: Ethekwini, from Itheku meaning “city”) is the third most populous city in South Africa  (after Johannesburg and Cape Town) and is the largest city in the South African Province of KwaZulu Natal.

So whether you are in the City for Business or Pleasure be prepared to be blown away by some of its Structures and Buildings (in no particular order).

1: Durban ICC – also known as Inkosi Albert Luthuli

The Durban ICC is constructed on the site od the old Durban Central Prison, and today the centre stands as a symbolic reminder of the transformation the country has undergone. It’s hard to believe that this site was once a place of darkness and incarceration has turned into a place of enlightenment and a venue of the global dialogue. Personally, I also call this an all-in-one Building, as it can host the following events:

  • Conferences
  • Exhibitions
  • Sports and Events
  • Weddings  / Banquets and private functions
  • Concerts

2. Durban City Hall

Known for its authentic structures as its construction is historical,  landmark finished in 1910. In 1903 architects were invited to submit designs when it was found that the original Town Hall (now the Durban Post Office) was no longer large enough. The exterior now has sculptures representing the Arts, Music, Literature, Commerce Industry. The Durban City Hall is home to a Public Library, the Natural Science Museum and the Durban Art Gallery. The entrance along Dr Pixlsy Kaseme Street takes you to the Municipal Offices and Meeting Rooms.

3. Durban Hilton Hotel

An award-winning business hotel located next to the Durban ICC within 5 munites of the beachfront, Hilton Hotel is a 5-star property featuring 3 restaurants and a business lounge. Hilton Durban first opened in 1997 and celebrates its 20 years having transformed all 327 bedrooms into contemporary spaces. The overall design is inspired by Durban’s rich, diverse cultural heritage and captivating history with the breathtaking stretch of golden shorelines and the warmth and hospitality of its people which fulfil the needs of the modern traveller.

4. Moses Mabhida Stadium

Moses Mabhida has been voted the most popular stadium in South Africa via an online poll, hosted 7 FIFA World Cup matches (including a semi-final attended by the likes of Paris Hilton, Leonardo DiCaprio and John Travolta) in 2010.

The success of this stadium is well documented, not only via the 27 awards received to date but more importantly, in just two years the highest level of utilisation for the new stadia in South Africa can be claimed by Durban’s stadium. Named after a giant of a man, Moses Mbheki Mncane Mabhida, who was one of those who helped to forge and maintain the powerful United Front that eventually saw the creation of a democratic and non-racial South Africa.  The design allows for natural ventilation and creates an incredible sense of space every bit as striking as the famous arch inspired by the “Y shape” on the South African flag.

5. uShaka Marine World

An 18 Hectare theme park which was opened on 30 April 2004 in Durban, KwaZulu Natal is located on the strip of land between the Beachfront and the Harbour. Comprised of 8 Sections, Seaworld, Wet ‘n Wild, Sea Animal Encounters Island, Beach, Village Walk, Moyo Pier, Dangerous Creatures and Chimp and Zee. It is know known for its safe, secure, clean environment that resonates the sound of fun, laughter and the spirit of togetherness.

6. Sibaya Casino  – Umhlanga

Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom is a top holiday destination and casino in Durban, located just a few minutes’ drive away from King Shaka International Airport. Set in the green hills of KwaZulu-Natal, overlooking the Indian Ocean, Sibaya invites you in with a royal welcome.

A taste of what to look forward to when visiting Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom:

  • Luxury hotel suites and comfortable lodge rooms overlooking the swimming pools and ocean.
  • A selection of slot machines and tables for gaming in style at the main casino.
  • Durban’s top restaurants, serving the local flavour and international cuisine.
  • A variety of entertainment options from theatre, shows, movies and special events.
  • State-of-the-art conference and function facilities.
  • Personalised treatments at the in-house Mangwanani Spa.

 

As the City Slogan goes…Welcome to Durban, The warmest place to be – Which can also be translated as…Durban Rocks!

Why are Bridges Built?

Why are Bridges Built?

I am not much of a Blogger, so let me just “build a bridge” and get over it.

Why do we need or build bridges?
Bridges have been built and used since ancient times, used to carry traffic or humans across an area of obstruction where they are unable to get across.

The benefits of Bridges:
Connecting people, goods and transport
Safety
Reduce traffic and collisions
Easy access (easy passage over obstacles)

The negative impact of Bridges:
Bridges can also be harmful to our environment, can harm trees, cause pollution of our waters, chemicals from vehicles and construction can contaminate the water via precipitation. The construction of bridges can also drastically change the environment and impose serious health issues.

How Bridges have evolved:
From cutting a tree, dragging it into position to serve as a plank, to tying rafts together to form a pontoon, to modern bridges, where you, me and any mode of transport can utilise.

Out with the old and in with the new:

The world’s longest sea crossing: The bridge spans 55km (34 miles) and connects Hong Kong to Macau and the Mainland Chinese City of Zhuhai.

Bridges are beautiful, a masterpiece designed by the hands of architects and art in the eyes of humankind.

Tip of the Day: Build and never burn your bridges

Insurance: Expectation vs. Reality

posted in: General 0

Insurance: Expectation vs. Reality

That Piece of Paper that helps you:

  1.  Own a home
  2.  Drive a vehicle
  3.  Help cover healthcare costs and legal expenses

The Question I think should be asked is:

Do we fully understand the contract deals, terms?
Truth be told, your broker can never explain EVERYTHING to you and who has the time to read all the fine print? Hence we then make hasty decisions based on our expectations.
Some of us get sold with a just a single telephone call without giving ourselves time to study the facts.

Expectations vs Reality

Our Expectations:

Can be based on a lot:

How well known is the insurance company?
How long has the company been around?
Who uses them?
How often and how well the company trends and advertises themselves.
Positive feedback from existing clients

An individual has the following expectations:

  • A Lump sum pay-out
  • No premium increases
  • Saving
  • Expect the Insurance company to be on your side
  • Get a pay-out even when we know that our premiums have not been constant
  • Inherited pay-outs

The Reality:

Insurance can offer you a second chance, a new beginning and a brighter future if all is correct and in order.

  • There is an insurance that suits you
  • Insurance cover is generally much cheaper when you are younger and healthier
  • You can insure just about anything these days
  • Think about the effects of missing one premium
  • Some Insurance pay-outs are TAXED
  • Insurance is a piece of mind, you rest well knowing you are protected

 

Accidents and Death are unfortunately inevitable for every home no matter the age, we will all come across unexpected issues in life that would require us to be able to take care of ourselves.
