|STEP 1 : ESTABLISH A PLANNING TEAM|
Demonstrate management's commitment and promote an atmosphere of cooperation by "authorizing" the planning group to take the steps necessary to develop a plan. The group should be led by the chief executive or the plant manager.
Establish a clear line of authority between group members and the group leader, though not so rigid as to prevent the free flow of ideas.
