    • C.

    A. True
    Explanation
    In traditional planning, individuals are indeed expected to follow predetermined goals and objectives with minimal input or involvement from themselves. This approach typically involves a top-down decision-making process where higher-level authorities or managers establish the goals and objectives, and individuals are expected to comply and work towards achieving them. This lack of input can lead to reduced motivation and engagement among individuals, as they may feel disconnected from the planning process and less invested in the goals and objectives.
