Strategic planning is the practice of looking forward, outside the immediate future for your organization, to reach a particular set of goals.
It also involves laying out—step-by-step—how you’re going to get there. Without this foundation in place, you’re likely to get caught up in a tornado of urgent activities that may not actually benefit your organization in the long term … and that’s no way to run a company.
It’s for that very reason we can help you in the efforts of strategic planning. Although the process is very detailed, it is broken up into three very distinct steps as follows:
- Preparing for strategic planning.
- Create your strategic plan.
- Put your strategic plan into practice.
