Strategic Planning & Performance Management
Intro to Strategic Planning
Strategic planning and performance management enable organizations to analyze internal and external factors that affect their business to formulate strategies, allocate resources and develop a competitive advantage.
Creating a culture of high performance and growth means that companies cannot just tread water to stay afloat. They must create and implement strategic goals to stretch and accelerate their strategic vision beyond what they thought was possible. To overcome the competition, it is important to stay one step ahead.
The Current Situation
The current COVID 19 pandemic has disrupted businesses at an unprecedented level, and the environment seems to be shifting on a daily and weekly basis. Companies will need to implement dynamic scenario planning into their strategy development to allow for quick responses to multiple scenarios across varying timelines. Strategies will need to be created to respond to the environment in the short-term as well as plan for business continuity and recovery over the long term.
Consumer needs and behaviours will also likely change permanently as a result of this pandemic, including a preference to shop online, preference to buy local and increased precautions taken around health and safety. These changing behaviours will require a need to adapt to the needs of the market. While daunting, this disruption provides an opportunity for companies to innovate and re-evaluate their strategic direction to adapt to the new business landscape. This is where we can help.
