How should you start reading Planning under Pressure? Your choice will depend on the nature
of your interests; the time at your disposal; and the extent of any prior familiarity you may have
with the strategic choice approach.
The purpose of this quick access guide is to help you in making your decisions about selective
reading. It does so first by outlining the principles on which the book is designed, then by making
some suggestions to help you establish your priorities.
One of the first things you will notice on flicking through the pages of this book is the number
and positioning of the illustrations. There are 102 full-page figures, all boldly numbered. Some
figures are professionally drawn, while others are drawn freehand – deliberately so, in order to
stress the spontaneous way in which the methods are usually used in practice. Other figures
again take the form of photographs, illustrating the approach in use in a workshop setting.
Above and below most of the figures will be found various key words and symbols. These are
designed to help the reader in making rapid cross-references within the text. Their meaning will
be explained in the next section.
