How You Get There - Strategic Planning

Strategic planning doesn't mean just laying out a plan of some sort to be followed blindly. It means understanding your customers, your employees and your product or service. Strategic planning begins with a situational analysis and possibly research.

A clear and actionable plan is conceived and developed. All the players are integrated into the plan. That means everyone from the maintenance staff to the president has an understanding of the brand and its benefits. The plan is put into action and reviewed. Management assesses the performance of the plan based on goal attainment and revises the plan accordingly. All of the steps are driven in one direction... which is creating value.
