Strategic planning identifies where an organization currently is, where it wants to go and helps formulates the needed decisions to get it there. A strategic approach enables an organization to make the best-aligned decisions to help it excel and grow.
There are many business ideas that never evolve past the idea stage. For that idea to reach the next level, that idea needs to be developed with a solid business roadmap and strong business strategic decisions. Business architecture helps to establish the business roadmap but that roadmap is intended to deliver upon key strategic decisions. Strategic planning helps to define an organization’s expectations, realize its position in the market, identify its corporate values and define the approach to accomplish its goals.
Strategy can be applied at every level of an organization from the overall organization to the product offering. It is important to ensure the strategy is aligned through each level so that the entire organization is operating in the same business direction.
Strategic planning should ideally occur at the launch of a new business venture to minimize change impacts and properly anticipate new business direction and key corporate milestones.
