Replace Planning by Predicting

CP Claude Philoche Public Seen by 364

Planning has negative connotations, i believe predicting less.

There is no added value to ostracize those who believe in the supreme value of predicting by using the word planning.

What do you think?

Wow, Claude, a hefty one to start off with. My view would be that both predicting and planning, finally are both merely 'guessing'.
Both do have a connotation of being focused on a status you make at a certain point. 'I do believe now that the future will look as this', while what is probably needed in some continuous reality check. Not sure I have the right word for it. Visioning gives a feeling of not being 100% sure (which is good), but still misses some of the idea that it needs to be a continuous exercise.
