Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning is an organizations’ process of defining direction and making resource allocation decisions to execute its vision.

A strategic plan should help an organization:

  • Understand the enterprise-wide implications of achieving new business targets
  • Identify key capability requirements
  • Define clear and practical strategies that can be operationalized and executed
  • Respond to changing conditions in the marketplace

One-third of all strategic plans fail.
