The Detailed Strategic Planning Process

A strategic plan can be a part of a business plan or a stand alone document to formulate a strategy for implementation.  In developing a Strategic Plan, our team recently undertook the steps and approach below with one of our clients.  The following may be helpful in planning out a process for development and implementation of your strategy:

  • Assessment of market and regulatory trends, globally and locally
  • Identification of key success factors in modern businesses (this industry and other industries)
  • Review of current sector physical assets and human resources
  • Conduct a SWOT analysis  of the competitive environment facing the business
  • Assessment of each product and/or service line , including:

Supply and demand,




Best Fit (alignment with the business’ values, ethics and goals)

  • Identification of goals and objectives for future industry participation
  • Constructive development of strategies (including options)
  • Development of priorities
  • Resource identification and requirements to achieve goals and objectives
  • Development of budgets and financial risk management
  • Implementation
  • Reviewing & measuring results, and revising as necessary

As highlighted in the steps, you will note the phases of the process, including review, analysis, development, implementation, measuring results, and revision of planning.
