Patrick has been true to his word and posted a copy of Stephen King's 1974 JWT Planning Guide at the Staufenberger Repository, along with a 1972 Jeremy Bullmore speech to Kraft. Reading them just reminds me how all us planning bloggers (and planners generally) are simply re-learning the lessons that the greats like Mr King learned all those years ago. if I'd ever had any planning training this is the planning training I'd like to have had.
I hope no-one at JWT objects to these being up there, I'm sure they won't, and it's good for them and everyone that this stuff is available to all, demonstrating their place in the history of planning. And anyway it's too late now. They're out, probably won't be long before you can get them as BitTorrent files.
Right, now who's got a copy of Jim's Planning Toolkit?
