StrategyDriven Strategic Planning Forum

A company's true value is largely determined by its long-term performance potential as shaped by management's decisions made today. These decisions guide the translation of the company's mission, its purpose for existing, into the products and services it provides and hopefully the market wants.
StrategyDriven Strategic Planning IntroductionStrategic planning is an iterative, ongoing process consisting of:

  • Analysis: assessment of the internal and external factors effecting the organization's ability to achieve its mission
  • Alternative Development: detailed assessment of the costs, benefits, and risks associated with strategic alternatives including both major, ongoing and newly proposed activities
  • Alternative Selection: identification of the current portfolio components and proposed activities that will be pursued and the time frame for execution
  • Resource Projections: aggregation of the personnel, financial, physical, and technological needs including an assessment of the ability to acquire these resources within the needed time frame
  • Plan Development: final validation of the organization's mission and compilation and approval of its long-range and annual business plans

Execution of these iterative processes takes place throughout the year with a frequency dictated by the pace of market change.
