Definition “Strategic management can be defined as the art and science of formulating, implementing and evaluating cross- functional decisions that enable an organization to achieve its objectives.” by David, F.R. Strategic Management: Concepts and Cases “An integrative management field that combines analysis, formulation, and implementation in the quest for competitive advantage.” by Rothaermel, F. T. (2012). Strategic Management: Concepts and Cases
  5. 5. Definition (cont.) “Strategic planning is defined as the process by which managers of the firm analyze the internal and external environments for the purpose of formulating strategies and allocating resources to develop a competitive advantage in an industry that allows for the successful achievement of organizational goals.” by Cox, Daspit, McLaughlin and Jones (2012) “Strategic management includes understanding the strategic position of an organisation, making strategic choices for the future and managing strategy in action.” by Johnson, Scholes and Whittington (2008)

  21. 21. Importance of strategic planning  Requirement for sustained competitive advantage  Views things from broader perspective  Facilitates collaboration
  22. 22. Importance of strategic planning (cont.) Requirement for sustained competitive advantage Some companies may achieve competitive advantage without thorough strategic planning but for the most businesses out there it is vital to plan strategically, i.e. analyze, create, implement and monitor their strategy, and do this continuously.
  23. 23. Importance of strategic planning (cont.) Views things from broader perspective The other reason why the organizations don’t simply rely on their finances, marketing or operations functional areas to bring the competitive advantage is that managers of each area often view things only from their own specific angle, which is too narrow view for the whole organization to rely upon. Only the managers (e.g. CEOs or strategic planners) who see the whole picture of the company and its surrounding environments can make the decisions that bring the competitive advantage.
  24. 24. Importance of strategic planning (cont.) Facilitates collaboration Nowadays, most companies involve middle managers of functional areas into the process of formulating strategic plan. Middle managers are the people who implement the strategies set out in a plan and if they aren’t involved in making the plan, then they aren’t so committed to support it.

  27. 27. Key benefits (cont.) 6. Better communication between managers of the different levels and functional areas. 7. Reduces resistance to change by informing the employees of the changes and the consequences of them. 8. Strengthens the firm’s performance. 9. On average, companies using strategic management are more successful than the companies that don’t. 10. Strategic planning allows the organization to become more proactive than reactive.
  28. 28. Limitations  The costs of engaging in strategic management are huge.  The process is complex.  Success is not guaranteed.
  29. 29. Guidelines for successful strategic planning  It should be implemented in the organization rather than left on paper.  Managers and employees must understand the process and be involved in it.  It cannot become too bureaucratic, formal and too rigid process  Managers involved in strategic management must know all the required information as soon as possible and use it to strengthen firm’s strategic efforts.
