Developing Strategies: The Process

After all of the work to map intended results from the strategy and learn about the past, present and future environments, what do you do with all of this good information?

The strategy planning process has to integrate the learning and key its focus on the results. The ultimate strategy needs to incorporate three things:

  • Long-term overarching approach, so you can appropriately allocate resources.
  • Short-term strategies relevant in the current environment to get to the earliest preconditions on your Strategic Roadmap.
  • Ongoing strategies to collect information about the environment and take time to reflect and adapt as needed, including leaving additional resources available for adaptation.
