Planning is the planning of the project.

Planning: Planning takes what developers and researchers have established in previous sections and brings them together to create a project plan. A project plan is important to knowing who will contribute what at what time, how the project team will finish their project, and contingency planning for setbacks.

After going through previous sections, you should have an idea of who has a stake in the project, what is required of the project, and what are the necessary resources. However, before actually building the game it is necessary to come up with a project plan for how you will proceed.
