Standing plans are those plans in organizations that can be used repeatedly because they apply to situations that can arise more than once. They are unlike single-use plans, which can only be used for a specific period of time (such as a budget) or for a certain project. The three major kinds of standing plans are policies, rules, and answer "C," procedures. A policy establishes guidelines that define actions that meet the organizational goals. Rules refer to the actions that an employee must take in a certain situation. A procedure defines the actions that have to be followed to accomplish a goal. Projects and programs are not kinds of standing plans, as they are single-use in nature; that is, they are meant to be followed for a specific task or a specific period of time but are not meant to be used repeatedly.
