Talk, Action, and Consequences

Talk, Action, and Consequences

(p.36) Two Talk, Action, and Consequences
Planning Matter

Robert A. Beauregard

University of Chicago Press

This chapter addresses the relationships among talk, action, and consequences within planning practice. Using case examples from planning practice in Minneapolis/St. Paul and Aalborg (Denmark), it explores the way in which, for planners, talk is action. It then addresses the extent to which planners might extend their activities to become involved in implementation and thus have more influence over the consequences of their advice. Here I use a case involving the port of Oakland (California).

Keywords:   talk, action, consequences, practice, implementation, intention
