A survey research design was adopted for the study. The study had a population size of 270, out of which a sample size of 161 was realized using Taro Yamanes 's formula at 5% error tolerance and 95% level of confidence. Instrument used for data collection was primarily questionnaire and interview. Out of 161 copies of the questionnaire that were distributed, 152 copies were returned while 9 were not returned. The hypotheses were tested using Pearson correlation and the data analyzed using descriptive statistical tools. The findings indicate that there is a significant relationship between planning and organizational performance (Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (r) is 0.873; p =0.00 < 0.05). The study further reveals that crisis management and lack of direction are the challenges that affect planning in an organization (Pearson moment correlation coefficient (r) = 0.65; p =0.00 <0.05). The study also showed that planning to a high extent facilitate proper coordination within an organization (Pearson moment correlation coefficient = 0.712; p=0.00 ><0.05). finally, it indicated that planning aids in reducing role ambiguity in an organization (Pearson moment correlation coefficient = 0.822; p=0.00 >< 0.05).
