Business & Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is an organization’s process of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy.

A company that produces a regular business plan is often the sign of a well-managed business. It provides direction and focus, and is an essential document when seeking financing. It defined objectives, strategies and actions and enable management to track performance and  take corrective action in good time. It enables management to step back at least once a year to contemplate the  bigger picture, look at strengths and weaknesses, and tackle the negatives. It should be a living document and not something  stored in a  file. It should be a roadmap to success.
