What is Strategic Planning?

  • Strategic Planning is a review by a firm’s senior management to see where their organisation stands, and what major steps it must take in order to prosper over the coming years
  • Strategic Planning is not some hi-tech exercise that is conducted by specialists
  • Organisations of every size and type increasingly have to make major decisions, which reflect the changes taking place all around them – Growing complexity of the business world makes these decisions ever more difficult
  • Many Executives, even those in very senior positions, tend to concentrate on short term emergencies– A balance is required between the short, medium and long-term needs of the business
