Clarifying Strategic Process
A company Strategy establishes what the organisation will do to deliver value for which customers are willing to pay and how it expects to hit target revenues and profits. The strategy doesn’t answer all the questions required for implementation.
A Strategic Roadmap is a time-based plan that defines where a business is, where it wants to go, and how it can get there. It is a visual representation that organizes and presents important information related to future plans.
Strategic planning is an organisational management activity that is used to set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, ensure that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals, establish agreement around intended outcomes/results, and assess and adjust the organization’s direction in response to the changing environment
