Strategic Planning & Goal Setting: Setting Business Goals, Targets & Deliverables


Introduction:

Effective strategic planning is essential to the future success of any organization. However, most strategic planning is lacking in vision. It is merely a straight-line extrapolation of the past into the future. In a world where the pace of change is greater than ever before this is at best shortsighted and at worst a prescription for disaster. Real strategic planning is about positioning the organization for a future that will be different from the past.
