- This study on the effectiveness of planning and implementation in Senegal (with a focus on the ministry of trade) and South Korea was carried out with the main objective of improving the effectiveness of public administration in Senegal. It specifically aimed at analyzing and assessing the effectiveness of planning and implementation process in Senegal ministry of trade, identifying factors that may lead to its failure or contribute to its success and make policy recommendations accordingly.
In fact, in order for the study to achieve the aforementioned objectives, this paper provided a theoretical background and conceptual definition to highlight the key concepts of planning and implementation, effectiveness as well as their derivatives. And in a practical approach, the paper assumed that the planning and implementation process is effective in South Korea as oppose to Senegal where the mechanisms in place were assumed not to be appropriate enough to guarantee an effective process. Those hypotheses were tested by means of a questionnaire intended for officials in both countries and referring to the research framework that considered the effectiveness of the process as a dependent variable of harmony between effective planning and implementation. As a matter of fact, primary data were used in this paper.
Besides, after exploiting the collected data, the results have confirmed the hypothesis of this paper stating that planning and implementation process is effective in South Korea contrary to Senegal. Thus, different failing factors leading to ineffectiveness of the process were identified and explanatory arguments given in order to find out what has not been done in Senegal to end up with such results and which parts need to be improved in South Korea. In the same way, success factors of implementation were identified so as to give appropriate responses and make the process more effective. In addition, some essential steps of strategic planning and key components of successful implementation were explained and discussed. The planning and implementation models of the two country cases were suited into the research framework in order to check what have led to the different discoveries.
Moreover, in reference to the different results found for each country, policy implications and recommendations were made in order to correct the gaps between the success model presented in the research framework and the actual discoveries.
Finally, the paper closes up on a summative conclusion that briefly confronts the objectives of the study and its outcomes and opens new perspectives by indicating its direction and stressing future research areas.
