Course Overview

Planning is an indispensable element of any business. Every business entity participates in the process of planning. This ranges from a small sole proprietor venture to a large conglomerate corporation. Planning establishes a set of assumptions for the future course of actions. The process enables a company to formulate its intent and recognise its goals. They decide upon a set of actions to be undertaken for the purpose of realising these intents and goals. The array of planning function varies from short term to long term, corporate to operational, tactical to strategic as it is unique to every organisation.

What are strategies in business?

A business needs long-term enduring vision that would act as a guidance for the management while formulating their strategies. Strategic planning is the process wherein the management of the company decides upon the goals and the direction in which strategies would be adopted to fulfil these goals. Strategic planning is not a detached activity that is conducted at the initiation of the business. Rather it is an open-ended activity that is embedded into the fabric of entire management.

Where does the organisation see itself in the long-run? What is the organisation’s vision and does the product and functioning adhere to this vision? Are market trends and customer needs in tandem with the organisation’s vision? How can vision be broken apart into strategic goals? What are the risks and obstacles the management is envisioning and how will they be tackled? Strategic Planning addresses these questions and creates a blueprint of the organisation’s goal during the process.
