This paper describes work undertaken in Pakistan within a project to strengthen the health planning system, aimed at improving the capacity of the planning cells to identify priorities and develop broad strategic guidelines. The work starts from the premise that identification of priorities requires two stages. In the first stage, problems must be structured and defined in a way that is accepted by all major stakeholders in the planning process. In the second stage, a transparent process of decision making must exist which will provide the means for the planning group to establish priorities and time‐scales. The tools chosen in this instance were selected in relation to the characteristics of the local environment, and the paper describes these.
