Strategic planning is the primary mechanism for executing a company’s strategy. It translates strategy formulation to the execution of decisions and actions across the organization every day – from the executives in the C-suite to the employees on the front line in the field.
Companies that create strong ties between their strategies, their plans, and, ultimately, their results experience a significant value multiplier effect. Yet strategic planning is where companies struggle and where results are less than encouraging.
For most companies, the typical strategic planning process is an annual over-bureaucratic exercise that fails to deliver on its promise. Most businesses derive less than 40% of the value of their strategies. More than 60% of the value evaporates in flawed execution.
