Importance of Goals in planning
Planning is the most crucial function of a manager.
Involves outlining the goals & objectives for a purpose of direction in the future.
Goals are the targets that the company desires to achieve
Plans cannot be made without goal setting
Importance of goals in Rotana’s expansion plans
“The expansion plans will see Rotana managing around 14,000 rooms across its properties by the end of 2012, and Rotana also expects a 6% occupancy rate growth next year across its portfolio of hotels in the region when compared to 2011’s figures”.
As occupancy rates increase they can invest in furnishing of more rooms
