Strategic Planning Simplified presents a reinvented model of strategic planning for the twenty-first century. Its objective is to help teams, departments, and businesses of all sizes and types to plan and implement strategies in an efficient, holistic, and integrated manner—in short, to become high-performance teams and organizations. You will learn how to:

•  Become educated and organized about strategic planning
•  Develop a plan that identifies your ideal vision of the future, specific measures of success, and core strategies
•  Ensure successful implementation
•  Build and sustain high performance over the long term

This field guide workbook has numerous "action" assignments that teach you to write and reflect on all the key elements of a strategic business plan.

Strategic Planning Simplified emphasizes the importance of backward thinking in strategic planning. This approach ensures that every moment spent planning saves three to four in execution. The PDF outlines the necessity of defining an ideal future vision and core strategies, which are crucial for meaningful annual operating plans and budgets. This method is designed to drive the achievement and measurement of your vision.

The document also introduces the Parallel Involvement Process, highlighting the importance of stakeholder engagement. By involving key stakeholders in the planning process, you ensure ownership and commitment to the implementation and execution of the strategies. The Systems Thinking Approach is used to set up a planning and change community, aiming to create a culture where strategic planning becomes a way of life.

Common mistakes in strategic planning are addressed, such as failing to define a clear vision or integrate planning at all levels. The guide provides actionable steps to avoid these pitfalls and emphasizes the importance of continuous improvement and regular reviews. This ensures that your strategic plan remains relevant and effective in achieving long-term success.
