What is strategic Planning

A plan is not a strategy.
An integrative set of choices that positions you on a playing field of your choice in a way that you win.

  • strategy has a theory, why we should be on this playing field and not the other.
  • And on this playing field, you are better at serving customers

A Strategic theory coherent and doable.
Who is the customer of your cost, you are.
Strategy includes the desired outcome you wish to achieve. You do not control the customers. They decide, not you.

  • Layout the logic of your strategy. What has to be true about your market, clients, customers, competitions, for this straegy to work . Then you can watch the world unfold. If the world is not working the way you hope, you can tweak. You have a mechanism to tweak this.

      • Here are the capabilities we need to have in place
      • Here are the management systems
    • Thus be able to achieve this goal.
