Strategic Planning is a management tool, period. As with any tool, Strategic Planning is used for one purpose only: to help you and your organization do a better job.
It allows an organization and its leaders to focus their energy, to ensure that members of the organization are working toward the same goals, and to assess and adjust the organization's direction in response to a dynamic, complex environment.
Management needs to be prepared to respond rapidly to the ever-changing landscape. Efficiencies, flexibility, benchmarking and adaptive change are part of the new set of rules. With effective planning you can create a framework for strategic management, continually asking the question, "Are we doing the right thing?" This entails attention to the big picture and the willingness to prepare and respond to emerging circumstances. It consists of the following elements:
Setting goals and developing an approach to achieving those goals within your dynamic corporate system
Maintaining the clarity and discipline to be productive
Paying attention to shifting and emerging patterns of behavior, activity and corporate culture
Making fundamental decisions and choices about what to do, why to do it, and how to do it; then acting
Shaping and guiding the organization, using resources successfully and focusing on the future
