           Data for this study were collected via planned interviews carried out with 95 to management executives and 144 department heads, representing 32 shareholding companies of varying activities in the joint sector.  Two specific questionnaires were designed for this purpose.

           The areas covered in the study include the existence of well defined and attainable overall objectives and specific goals, length of planning period, preparation of a corporate plan, origination of strategies, planning techniques, planning problems, top management interest in planning, systems and techniques of performance evaluation, performance evaluation problems, and the relations between planning and controlling activities.

           The study has indicated that the current practices on planning and performance evaluation in most of the surveyed companies lack the scientific approach and need a much keener interest.  Many companies do not take future techniques seriously.  Inadequate systems and techniques of planning and performance evaluation are prevailing in the majority of the surveyed companies.  Besides most of the companies lack the component specialized staff in planning and performance evaluation activities.  Inadequate concern and support is given by senior management to planning and performance evaluation efforts.
