Strategic Planning


Many executives see their organizations’ strategy-development processes as bureaucratic rather than insightful—more focused on the past rather than on developing future competitive advantage. Executives also face the crucial challenge of translating strategic insight into actionable corporate plans and linking them with annual budgets.
Five questions are at the heart of the dialogue on how to improve the quality of planning:

  • How can we best generate the creative insights that lead to competitive advantage?
  • How do we increase our agility and preparedness in the face of a volatile environment?
  • How do we best translate strategic vision into corporate plans and annual budgets?
  • How can we foster alignment to ensure our strategy is transformed into action?
  • What processes will achieve our objectives most efficiently?
