Description: The article considers the main provisions for assessing the effectiveness of planning and implementation of programs and plans for the development of the Armed Forces. The existing approach to appraisal of the results of programs and plans implementation that is based on the indicator of the relative approximation of the received / planned result to the planned / defined at planning and execution of tasks and measures of programs and plans of development of the armed forces is analyzed. The essence of effectiveness in the proposed approach is the ratio of the degree of approximation of the resulting result (planning or execution) to the resources spent on such a result. It is also proposed to consider as a resource the time at which a military formation needs to achieve the ability to carry out tasks for its intended purpose. It is concluded that this approach can be used to measure the effectiveness of planning and implementing program activities and plans during defense planning in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
