  4. 4. Proposed Media Strategy Planning <ul><li>Architecture –Decompose the strategy into media strategic themes. e.g. improve antenna’s international presence, optimize antenna group’s convergence and digitalization business architecture. </li></ul><ul><li>Targets –Develop stretch targets through cause and effect scenarios, e.g. optimize group’s targets through antenna’s corporate and international portfolio. </li></ul><ul><li>Initiatives –Define a portfolio of cross-functional initiatives for each theme, e.g develop a multi dimensional CRM strategy through out the group not only TVs, this can be optimized and intertwined with targets </li></ul><ul><li>Accountability –Assign accountability by strategic theme, every theme that is strategic focus should have an owner and someone accountable </li></ul><ul><li>Functions –Align functional plans with enterprise strategy, Antenna’s functional plans on how sales management conducted or marketing campaigns should be linked to strategy </li></ul><ul><li>Funding –Link the strategy to the budget, very important issue budget will change solely from ground up, which means that strategy will drive Antenna not budget. </li></ul><ul><li>Purchasing- Theoritical cost model identified and consolidated to planning processes. E.g. production cost management through activities and contract alignment to cost model. </li></ul>The toolset
  5. 5. Two important issues need to be taken into account when designing a strategically aligned media organization planning and budgeting process a) Strategy Planning –generally deals with the two to five year window, focused on long term direction and programs b) Operational Planning & Budgeting –focused on the one to two year horizon

  14. 14. My Media View Strategic themes should be the basis for planning and execution of strategy. They provide a convenient framework for cross-business integration. Targets should reflect the cause-effect nature of strategy, rather than focusing on single factors Initiatives should be bundled by theme, prioritized, funded and managed as a portfolio prior to the beginning of the budgeting process Accountability should be assigned by strategic theme at the executive level of the organization Each function should identify a portfolio of strategic initiatives, derived from the themes of the integrated strategic plan, as the input to their functional plans. Strategic investments should be grouped as a common budget category / account, (similar to G&A, R&D, etc.) so they can be managed appropriately . Driver based models, built on a deep understanding of the activities and core processes supporting the economic business model, are essential for successful rolling forecasts as they provide the bridge between operational activities and financial outcomes Operational investments should be prioritized and funded using a multi-criteria approach. Investment management should then be integrated in to the rolling forecast to dynamically re-evaluate and re-allocate resources. Rolling forecast, based on driver models, support dynamic, continuous planning in everything from strategy refreshes and target setting to the development of the annual plan.
