What is strategic planning?

Strategic planning can be defined as a process implemented by businesses in order to envision a desired future, translate this vision into broad goals and objectives and to determine how these goals and objectives will be realised and achieved. This form of planning involves:


  • Setting out specific business priorities
  • Defining a business strategy
  • Making decisions regarding allocating resources in order to pursue this strategy
  • Focussing  operations and resources
  • Ensuring stakeholders and employees work together towards achieving a common goal or objective
  • Establishing the intended results and/or outcomes and assessing and adjusting a business’s direction (taking into account the ever-changing business environment)


The strategic planning process is put into place to make fundamental and informed decisions regarding the actions that should be taken to guide and shape what a business is, what market it serves, what it does, and why it does it.

The strategic planning process will unlock your business’ potential

Strategic planning is an extremely important process that will assist a business in achieving eventual success. The importance of strategic planning lies in the fact that it provides businesses with a sense of direction, while at the same time outlining measurable goals/objectives. Although strategic planning is not an effective tool for guiding day-to-day activities and decisions, it is useful for evaluating a business’ progress and implementing change in management and other processes in order to move forward according to the goals and priorities of stakeholders.


The strategic planning process ensures that all resources are efficiently and correctly aligned, that time is being managed correctly, and that the entire workforce of a business is working/striving towards a common goal.


This form of planning is truly essential and indeed critical, as it enables a business as a whole to gain overall strategic direction when it comes to the management thereof. With the help of strategic planning, a business will be able to achieve success by developing effective financial strategies, human resources strategies, marketing strategies and business development strategies.
