                                      What is Strategic Planning?

                                      Strategic planning is both an “event” and an “ongoing process” that aims to define the organisations strategy, or the direction that the organisational will pursue. Typically strategic planning has four steps

                                      • Analysis of your business operating environments (Internal, Industry and Macro environments) often summarised in a SWOT analysis
                                      • Strategic choice or making a decision based on your analysis
                                      • Implementation of the strategic plan
                                      • Review the outcomes and refine the plan


                                      In many organisations the senior managers attend a one to three day strategic planning event either annually or every second year. During this event they brainstorm their analysis and progress the analysis through to the development of a strategy.


                                      However, once a strategy is developed and documented then the “ongoing strategic process” will commence with the managers continuing to observe their strategic environment for changes, when a change in the environment is observed the impact of this change on the businesses current strategic plan will be considered.

                                      Internal Analysis
                                      An internal analysis is completed to determine what your business is good at and what you are not so good at. A strength is generally something that your customers value and that you are better than your competitors at. For example you may have a great culture and amazing leadership (both strengths, but unlikely to be valued by your customer) however it leads to your employees putting in the extra effort to service your customers, this service maybe a strength.
