Strategic Business Plan

Strategic Business Plan

Strategic business plan is a process employed by successful businesses where they continuously monitor the ever-changing external and internal business environments, and regularly review their strategies and business plans to maintain or achieve the company’s desired position.

Our Strategic Business Planning services are designed to help businesses establish an effective strategic business planning process and promote strategic thinking through:

  • Review and Analysis of the internal business environment;
  • Review and analysis of the external business environment;
  • Support in strategy choice and formulation including corporate (portfolio) strategy, business (competitive advantage) strategy, and functional level (business processes) strategies;
  • Development of a sound strategy implementation plan supported by evaluation tools for subsequent review and control;

and produce a number of strategic process outputs such as:

  • Strategic Business Plan – a document defining the organisation’s desired position, focus and direction, and outlining its strategic priorities, goals and objectives, and rational and implementable strategies to achieve it;
  • Operational Business Plans – documenting functional level strategies and establishing activities, measures and budgets for marketing, manufacturing, R&D, IT and other operating divisions in an organisation;
  • Strategy Maps and Scorecards;
  • Strategy linked Budgets including detailed Capital requirements, Sales, Cash Flow and Profit & Loss accounts.

Strategic Business Plans and other strategy documents are usually written for internal use by the Management or Board of Directors. The starting point in the process is a detailed review of the existing business and as such requires a significant information input and participation from the Client. Strategic Business Plans are prepared by our Head Planner. Communication with the Client can be carried over the phone, but a meeting in person is an advantage.
