What is Strategic Planning?
Strategic planning is a systematic process for developing an organisations direction. It sets the objectives and actions required to achieve the future vision and outlines metrics for measuring success. By helping you refocus on your fundamental purpose, goals and opportunities. Having a strategy paints the big picture and forms the basis for your business to achieve your vision.
A strategic plan is not to be confused with a business plan which is generally viewed as being an operational plan, and normally is an annual plan. A strategic plan, on the other hand, is about high level thinking, looking forward up to five years.
