Objective: Standing plan, An objective just states the result which is to be attained. Eg. 'Raise sales by 20% in the next year'
Programme: Single use plan. It is also aimed todays attainment of a goal but it lays down the steps to be taken. Programme doesnt just specify the final result, it explains exactly how to achieve it. Eg. 'Training programme for employees' it will specify all the training methods to use and the duration.
