Strategic Planning

Strategic planning encourages organizations to take a look beyond the pressures of daily operational life and to see the future as it could and should be. Whether it's in the form of sales growth, market share, profit margin, customer service, leadership ability, a combination of all or the achievement of another macroeconomic element, strategic planning defines where an organization should be heading and a detailed action plan to achieve the organization's goals.

What are outcomes of Strategic Planning?

  • Explains the business to stakeholders in order to inform, motivate, and involve
  • Takes a holistic look at an organization's goals
  • Tests and refines corporate objectives
  • Provides a basis for more effective annual business plans
