One reason is that the art of Amphibious Warfare had not been developed at the time. Another reason is that the Turkish resistance to the landings was not only fierce, it was also well executed. The landings were attempted at night and boats drifted in the dark away from the intended landing place…, ending up at the bottom of steep cliffs in the place we now call ANZAC cove. here they could find little cover from Turkish guns.

The Schlieffen plan was the German plan of attack designed to defeat France quickly and then turn on Russia. It was intended to avoid a war on two fronts. However, the plan was based on a number of assumptions, and these turned out to be flawed. . It was thought that Russia would take at least …six weeks to mobilize. In reality Russia mobilized in just ten days. . The German General Staff thought that Belgium would not resist any Germany attack. When Germany invaded on 2nd August 1914, they were held up by the Belgium army, backed up by the BEF (British Expeditionary Force). . It was also estimated that France could easily be defeated in six weeks. Backed by the British, the French managed to halt the German advance. . The Germans thought that Britain would not fight and that its army was just a huge joke. With the quick Russian mobilization, Germany was forced to withdraw troops from France defend her eastern border. Thus, the Schlieffen Plan failed because it was based on a number of monumemtally arrogant assumptions that were flawed. For years the German General Staff had been badly out of touch with reality.

Failure to plan is planning to fail discus this statement in relation to development planningshowing merits and obstacles to the planning process?
Failure to Plan is planning to fail. This Statement is true , however there are other factors that may lead to failing in anything one does. Issa a student at Mountains of the moon university - Uganda has the following views; Planning guides an individual on what to do and when to do it. In ref…erence to the teaching profession, planning is very important in the class room situation teachers need to prepare lesson plans and schemes of work. This is important if the learners are to understand the content taught Teachers have failed to teacher not because they fail to plan but because of thing like ; The discipline of the learners, The school environment; The family background of the learners, Limited resources to use during teaching, Poor curriculum designs. When you plan your work it is organised and properly done. In the Education context it is important to plan without planning the aims of education may not be achieved. Planning is very important as far as teaching is concerned As a teacher I have the following views about planning and failing; When you fail you did not plan to fail because no body wishes to fail. But when you fail to plan especially at the beginning you are automatically planning to fail. Consider a situation where you are going to teacher and it is just 5 minutes for you to start your lesson with your class and you are still 4km away from the school, you have not made lesson plan and scheme of work of the lesson and even your learners have not swept the class. This is automatic that you will fail to teach the period in the time it was supposed to be taught This clearly show that when one fails to plan he will fail his mission at the end. As teachers we need planning since without which we are liable to fail our learners The headteacher should plan for all the activities in the school at the beginning of the term. These may include the public days the time of exams the time of visits and others. Planning creates confidence in the teacher and it is this that stimulates the learners to learning. When you plan, you are aware of what to do next, you are organised and you know what you are doing. In other words one who plans do not panic in any way. Economically planning is very important. To the school there are many activities which need to be planned This means that as teachers we need to know much about planning. Activities like improving the school standard , student's behavior and student's performance needs planning and in many schools where planning is poor, such activities fail- meaning that failing to plan automatically leads to fail. Let us look at our Country Uganda, it is a country where people are below poverty line and they survive but do not leave, and it is through planning that few are leaving, the incomes are low but the expenditures are many. To survive planning is very important. I come back to our fellow teachers who are in the field working. Most of these have been characterised by the community to be poor, low income earners, doing a bad profession, etc. But I personally look at this as a result of poor planning. The teaching profession is the best of all other professions because, Teachers are given holy days but still get their earnings though small compared to other professions that do not get such holy days. Being a teacher one has freedom of doing other activities apart from teaching so long as they will not negatively affect his or her teaching. Now the question is, What has caused teachers be called poor and teaching profession be called bad? The best and obvious answer is that people involved in the teaching profession have failed to plan for the time they have and the money they get however little it is. There teachers should note that as they teacher they should plan for their time and other resources. As student teacher therefore we should prepare to meet challenges in the field we are in and we should prepare enough to overcome them through early planning I can not confine the reasons to why people fail in doing certain activities to failure to plan. In reference to the teaching profession there are so many reasons why students fail to pass tests and examinations, why teachers fail to teach and why schools fail to improve their general performance. These include; Limited resources in the schools Background of the learners The attitudes of the learners towards education The current curriculum Lack of parental participation in the school management.

Organization that fail to plan are planning to fail The above statement maybe a bit of a clichÃ©, but in many respects its true. Many business opportunities and projects are lost due to a lack of planning. Every business needs a plan. It's like a roadmap, and you can't expect to reach your goal…s, success and profitability unless you know the steps you need to take to get from your starting point to your final destination. Entrepreneurs and business managers are often so preoccupied with immediate issues that they lose sight of their ultimate objectives. That's why a business review or preparation of a strategic plan is a virtual necessity. This may not be a recipe for success, but without it a business is much more likely to fail. A sound plan should: Â· Serve as a framework for decisions or for securing support/approval. Â· Provide a basis for more detailed planning. Â· Explain the business to others in order to inform, motivate & involve. Â· Assist benchmarking & performance monitoring. Â· Stimulate change and become a building block for the next plan. Â· Be something to inspire people to pull together in the same direction Â· Provide a route-map to navigate the difficult times to come out stronger at the end. Â· Be a framework to build on current success. More often than not a strategic plan is something that is sometimes done and then put away in a drawer. To overcome this we have a very interactive and highly effective strategic planning tool. It will let your strategic planners gather around a table, often over a glass of wine, and every crucial element of your business will be explored in sequence, prompted by small cards that each person takes a turn to select. The cards are then linked and placed on the board either for immediate, medium-term or long-term action. This unique method for creating your strategic plan (or project plan) makes the process fun, meaningful, conversational and conducted in a way which involves all key stakeholders. Once this has been done it is transferred to software with everyone's responsibilities allocated and installed onto the teams computers. As actions are completed the stages on the software will change colour so everyone knows exactly where you are with your strategic plan. This is a process that works and is highly orientated towards achieving results through your strategic plan. Our facilitated strategic planning process will take you through a critical review of past performance of your business and the preparation of a useable plan. Some essential points which will be observed during the review and planning process include the following: Relate to the medium term i.e. 2/4 years Be undertaken by owners/directors/key stakeholders/strategic planning team Focus on matters of strategic importance Be separated from day-to-day work Be realistic, detached and critical Be reviewed periodically Be written down! As the precursor to developing a strategic plan, it is desirable to clearly identify the current status, objectives and strategies of an existing business or the latest thinking in respect of a new venture. Correctly defined, these can be used as the basis for a critical examination to probe existing or perceived Strengths, Weaknesses, Threats and Opportunities. ( Full Answer )

Answer \n. \nThe Schlieffen Plan relied upon the destruction of the Western Allies within a very short period of time, allowing Germany to focus on Russia and avoid war on two fronts. When the German attack of the West failed, they were forced to split the attentions of their military and were rend…ered incapable of delivering decisive blow to the Allies. This resulted in stalemate. . After the failure of the Schlieffen Plan the German High Command did not continue the war with an attitude of hopeful optimism. They found a man called Alexander Helphand who knew a Russian nihilist whose aim was the destruction of Russia. In 1915 the Germans recruited him and began payments that finally amounted to 86m gold marks (Prof Fritz Fischer) The Russian`s name was Lenin. A miracle was needed for him to succeed. It was provided by the British backing for General Kornilov`s disastrous attempt at counter-revolution in August 1917. . ( Full Answer )
That's true. Though after a few times failing, for lack of planning, I think it can be said that the very act of not planning is itself "planning to fail".
In the business world, planning is to avoid the consequences offailure. Planning helps to have a focus, and solutions to possibleissues that may arise. The consequences could be not havingrealistic goals, and not having the right people to help accomplishthe goals.
This is only an opinion, based on many years of managerial and supervisory positions, from 4 people to 1,000: When you have a weak link, say, an individual that doesn't really aspire to success in the operation, then you have an individual that is resisting the operation. Resistance has many sons an…d daughters, some of which are deceit, lying, roughness, and laziness. Look for the weak link, albeit stealthily. Study their output and if you decide to replace that cell, do so. Compartmentalize the different operations. One of them offers less than 100%. which is it? The same understanding is given by a mechanic when attempting to find the problem to the battery's inability to receive a charge or to retain a charge? Is it the fuse (1 cell), is it the wire from the fuse to under thd hood (another cell); is it the alternator, is it the battery? You get the idea. Hope that helps . . .

Yep.... Just that the phrase doesn't really make sense, you can't not plan (fail to plan) and plan to fail, i mean, what he hell
What this means is if you don't plan for something i.e. 'fail to plan' then you can expect things to go wrong i.e. 'plan to fail'. Quite self explanatory.
People fail to plan for a number of reasons. The most common isthinking they can do it at the last minute. Some people justforget.

There is chaos among the boys, and no cooperation. There is not a collective effort to carry out the rescue plan, but only Ralph's tribe actually works to make it happen. However, Jack's tribe is only focusing and interested in hunting wild pigs and possibly even killing the beast( they do not know …what the beast actually is). Thus, Jack and his boys let the signal fire die out because they were busy hunting, when Ralph ordered them to tend the fires. This also shows defiance and weakening of Ralph's power, which then leads to Jack hunting down Ralph and Piggy being murdered. Now, the boys' chances of rescue seem impossible. ( Full Answer )

Cash-flow variance to plan can result in the business running out of money leading to failure.

If you do not update the plan regularly and at acceptable intervals the plan will not help you at all and if you try to follow a plan that has not been updated with changes it will take you to a totally undesired point.
The meaning of the phrase "if you fail to plan you plan to fail" simply means if you do not plan out, it is recipe for failing. It means to plan out before you do something, think it out so to speak.
you should have a comma after "plan" and "fail" should have an "s" at the end. Irony FAIL!
Frequently because they are not robustly reviewed. When a development plan is created many expect its content to be a straight line to success - No so. A Development plan is set out as a map to get from A to B. When such a plan is created all parties should have input and understand what their task …is to help all teams get from the concept of the plan to the end of the plan. Each section of the plan (task) will have an owner and a target date to achieve. When the plan goes live one person should be responsible for collating where everyone involved is up to in its progress. If one section hits a stumbling point which may be unforeseen then representatives from each time (task force) will meet to discuss what has occurred and how this can be overcome, moved or steered around without inflicting burden on other s as far as it is possible. These are review meetings which MUST occur regularly. With regular meetings taking place and open, honest frank discussions occurring many plans will and do succeed. The greatest cause of failure is the management of the plan and those with the authority to do so not taking responsibility for driving it forward ( Full Answer )
Plans failure in Nigeria is due to lack of perfect monitoring system in the country. This gives the contractors the chance to divert the fund made available to them for their own selfish purposes. Another big factor is a corrupt government. most of the contractors receive half the money mapped ou…t for the contract. this makes them to leave the contract half way. Again, the people are reluctant to the affairs in the government. If a government promises something, and ddn't get it done, would't the people ask why its not done? but most of the cases, the people are not bothered with that.

That the Schlieffen Plan had failed was incontestable after the First Battle of the Marne halted the German advance through France. The Germans started well, obeying the dying words of the elder von Moltke, "only make the right wing strong." The Germans had eight field armies when they went to wa…r, and assigned one of them to hold the Russians, with the other seven to pivot like a giant gate through the low countries and France. The idea was that the last soldier at the end of the line should have one foot in the sea. But the Russians heeded desperate French pleas for any action in the east as a diversion, and lurched into action before they were ready (and they never got back to the equilibrium they might have had with a methodical start). This premature Russian advance caused the Germans to lose their nerve and transfer three army corps from France to the east. As it worked out this effectively served no purpose except to remove these three army corps from the equation. The Germans in the east had won before they could get there. Meanwhile gathering supply problems and growing exhaustion on the troops at the end of the line, who had the farthest to travel, combined with these three missing army corps caused the Germans to shorten their envelopment of the French, so that they now did not contemplate the capture of Paris in their initial sweep. The Germans would pass to the east of Paris. This was abandonment of the Schlieffen Plan, the failure of which was soon thereafter made incontrovertible by the "miracle of the taxicabs" and the First Battle of the Marne. ( Full Answer )
