Understanding Strategic Planning:

Strategic planning serves as a vital organizational management process used to establish priorities, allocate resources, enhance operations, ensure alignment among stakeholders, define desired outcomes, and adapt to evolving circumstances. It involves deliberate decision-making to shape an organization’s identity, clientele, activities, and purpose, with a forward-looking approach. Effective strategic planning not only outlines an organization’s direction and necessary actions for progress but also defines criteria for measuring success.
