Is it worth embarking on a strategic planning process? YES!!

The key to successful strategic planning is to build in implementation steps and measures that allow you to engage your staff and monitor results at regular intervals, not just once a year! The work of strategic planning doesn’t stop at the strategic plan, but it’s a fantastic start!

Here are the top 5 benefits of strategic planning:

1. It allows organizations to be proactive rather than reactive.

Through strategic planning, your company can anticipate unfavorable scenarios before they happen and make precautions to avoid them, allowing you to be proactive rather than merely reacting to situations. Being proactive allows you to keep up with ever-changing trends in the market and always stay one step ahead of the competition.  

2. It sets up a sense of direction.

A strategic plan helps define the direction in which your organization must travel, establishing realistic objectives and goals. A strategic plan offers the foundation from which you can evaluate your success and establish a framework for efficient decision-making.
3. It increases operational efficiency.

A strategic plan provides the road-map to align your organization’s functional activities to achieve set goals. It guides decision making in determining resource and budget requirements to accomplish set objectives - increasing operational efficiency.

4. It helps to increase market share and profitability.

Through a dedicated strategic plan, your organization can get valuable insights on market trends, consumer segments, and product and service offerings that affect your success. An approach that is targeted and strategically planned to turn all sales and marketing efforts into the best possible outcomes can help to increase your profitability and market share.
5. It can make a business more durable.

A business may be booming one year and in debt the next. With constantly changing markets, organizations that lack strong focus and foresight will have trouble riding the next wave. According to reports, one of every three companies that are leaders in their industry might not be there in the next five years... but the odds are in favor of those that have a strong strategic plan! 

Put the odds in YOUR favor with a Strategic Planning Meeting at the Salisbury Business Center!
