Strategic Planning

The word strategy derives from the Greek word strategos meaning literally “the art of the general”. Applied to business situations strategic planning is both a tool and a philosophy that enables management to become more effective and efficient by allowing it to take the initiative rather than reacting to events. Planning by its very essence provides for the consideration of the present and future circumstances surrounding decision making. Organisational strategies can be both deliberate or may emerge unintentionally through management decisions and actions. In many organisations the gap between the theory and practice of planning is very real. Strategic planning is not a panacea for corporate problems, the process needs to be carefully tailored to the organisation it serves to be effective. Ultimately it must be judged by the improvement in organisational performance that results from its implementation. Successful implementation of strategy is often critical to the success of a company.
