  17. 17. Planning process  Planning starts with the setting of goals and objectives to be achieved  Planning requires a systematic approach.  Planning premises may be internal or external. Internal includes capital investment policy, management labour relations, philosophy of management, etc. Whereas external includes socioeconomic, political and economical changes.
  18. 18. Steps involved in Planning Process 1. Goal setting:  Plans are the means to achieve certain ends or objec­tives. Setting objectives is the most crucial part of planning. The organizational objectives should be set in key areas of operations. Establishment of goals is influenced by the values and beliefs of executives, mission of the organization, organizational resources, etc. The objectives must be clear, specific and informative. 
  19. 19. 2. Developing the planning premises:  Before plans are prepared, the assumptions and conditions underlying them must be clearly defined these assumptions are called planning premises and they can be identified through accurate forecasting of likely future events. Assessment of environment helps to reveal opportunities and constraints. Analysis of internal (controllable and external (uncontrollable) forces is essential for sound planning premises are the critical factors which lay down the bounder for planning.
  20. 20. 3. Reviewing Limitations:  In practice, several constraints or limitations affect the ability of an organization to achieve its objectives. These limitations restrict the smooth operation of plans and they must be anticipated and provided for. The strong and weak points of the enterprise should be correctly assessed. 4. Deciding the planning period:  Once the broad goals, planning premises and limitations are laid down, the next step is to decide the period of planning. The planning period should be long enough to permit the fulfillment of the commitments involved in a decision.
  21. 21. 5. Formulation of policies and strategies:  After the goals are defined and planning premises are identified, management can formulate poli­cies and strategies for the accomplishment of desired results.   Alternative plans of action should be developed and evaluated carefully so as to select the most appropriate policy for the organization. 6. Preparing operating plans:  After the formulation of overall operat­ing plans, the derivative or supporting plans are prepared. Several medium range and short-range plans are required to implement policies and strategies.
  22. 22.  These plans consist of procedures, programmers, sche­ dules, budgets and rules. Such plans are required for the implementation of basic plans. 7.Integration of plans:  Different plans must be properly balanced so that they support one another. Review and revision may be necessary before the plan is put into operation. Moreover, the various plans must be communicated and explained to those responsible for putting them into practice.
  23. 23. Planning levels
  24. 24. Characteristics of Plans Time Horizon: refers to how far in the future the plan applies.
  25. 25. Hierarchy of Organization Plans  Organizations are typically managed according to two types of plans.  STRATEGIC PLANS: Plans that are designed by high ranking managers and define the broad goals for the organization.  OPERATIONAL PLANS: Plans that contain details for carrying out, or implementing those strategic plans in day to day activities.  MISSION STATEMENT: Broad organizational goal, based on planning premises, which justifies an
  26. 26. THE SEVEN-S MODEL MCKINSEY &CO has proposed the seven-s model for successful strategy implementation. MCKINSEY’S consultants found that neglecting any one of seven key factors could make the efforts to change a slow, painful, and even doomed process.  STRUCTURE: A successful organization may make temporary structural changes to cope with specific strategic tasks without abandoning basic structural divisions throughout the organization.  STRATEGY: The seven-s model emphasizes that the development of strategies poses less of a problem than their execution.  STAFF: Successful organizations view people as valuable resources who should be carefully nurtured, developed,
  27. 27. Contd…..  SUBORDINATE GOALS: This refers to guiding concepts, values and aspirations that unite an organization in some common purpose.  SYSTEM: This category consists of all the formal and informal procedures that allow the organization to function, including capital budgeting, training, and accounting systems.  SKILLS: It refers to those activities organizations do best and for which they are known.  STYLE: It refers to the pattern of substantive and symbolic actions undertaken by top managers. It communicates priorities more clearly than words and may influence performance.
  28. 28. OPERATIONALISING STRATEGY  OPERATIONAL PLANS: Plan that provides details needed to incorporate strategic plans into the organization’s day to day operations.  SINGLE USE PLANS: Detailed course of action used once or only occasionally to solve a problem that does not occur repeatedly.  PROGR AM: A single used plan that covers a relatively large set of organizational activities and specifies major steps, their order and timing, and the unit responsible for each step.  PROJECT: The smaller and separate portions of the program.  BUDGETS: Formal quantitative statements of the resources allocated to specify programs or projects for a
  29. 29.  STANDING PLAN: An established set of decisions used by managers to deal with recurring or organizational activities; major types of policies, procedures and rules. POLICY: A standing plan that establishes general guidelines for decision making. RULES: Standing plans that detail specify actions to be taken in a given situation. PROCEDURE: A standing plan that contains detailed guidelines for handling organizational actions that occur regularly.
  30. 30. INSTITUTIONALISING STRATEGY  An Institution is a collection of values, norms, roles, and groups that develops to accomplish a certain goal. To emphasize systems, style, staff, skills, and super ordinate goals, we need to look at how strategy is institutionalized. THE ROLE OF THE CEO Chief executive officers(CEOs) spend most of their time developing and guiding strategy their personal goals and values inevitable shape organizational strategy. Their role in strategy formulation makes CEOs especially important to strategy implementation. First they interpret strategy, acting as final judges when managers disagree on implementation. Second, CEOs enact- through their words and actions- the seriousness of an organization’s commitment to a strategy. Third, CEOs motivate, providing intangible incentives
  31. 31. THE STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT PROCESS  Strategic management provides a disciplined way for managers to make sense of the environment in which their organization operates, and then to act. Two phases are involved:Strategic Planning: this includes both the goal setting and the strategy formulation process. Strategy Implementation: there is a shift from analysis to administration- the task of achieving predetermined goals.
  32. 32. BUSINESS STRATEGIES  LOW COST: Gain a competitive advantage by driving down organizational cost.  Managers manufacture at lower cost, reduce waste.  Lower cost than competition means lower prices.  DIFFERENTIATION: Gain a competitive advantage by making our product different from others.  Differentiation should be valued by customers.  Successful differentiation allows you to charge more for a product.
  33. 33. Corporate level Strategies  Concentrate in single business: MC Donald's focuses in the fast food business. • Can become very strong, but can be risky.  Diversification: Organization moves into new business and services. • Related diversification: firm diversifies in similar areas to build upon existing divisions.  Synergy: two divisions work together to obtain more than the sum of each separately.  Unrelated diversification: buy business in new areas. • Build a portfolio of unrelated firms to reduce risk or trouble in one industry
  34. 34. “FIVE FORCES” CORPORATE STRATEGY An Organization’s ability to compete in a given market is determined by that organization’s technical and economic resources, as well as by five environmental forces each of which threatens the organization’s venture into a new market. The five forces are: THREAT TO NEW ENTRANTS.  BARGAINING POWER OF BUYERS(CUSTOMERS).  BARGAINING POWER OF SUPPLIERS.  THREAT OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS.  RIVALRY AMONG COMPETITORS.
  35. 35. FUNCTIONAL LEVEL STRATEGIES  Seeks to have each department add value to a good or service.  Marketing, service, production all add value to a good or service.  Value is added in two ways:  Lower the operational cost of providing the value in products.  Add new value to the product by differentiating.  Functional strategies must fit with business level strategies.
