    We define strategy as a portfolio of linked and evolving initiatives that togetherenhance long-term performance and marketplace valueStrategic planning is simply an organized method for guiding an organization from where it is to where it wants to be. We can call it alternative futures or apply other terms in vogue but, done properly, it all comes down to moving an organization forward into emerging opportunities.By definition, strategy is from the Greek word strateg(os), meaning the art of the general. National Football League. Teams look forward three seven years or more Determine competitive environment Develop strategic plan and strategy to counter threats and take advantage of opportunities Acquire quarterback who can execute the team strategy and build the team around him Modify by drafting and trading players to develop team chemistry, acquire players to fill gaps and release players with redundant skills

    The strategic plan provides the resourses to allows players and coaches to develop operational plans for the season and tactical plans for individual games and plays.Strategy and operationaldisconnectsA disjointed decision making process creates excessive costs and restrictsan organizations ability to identify, much less capitalize on, hidden oremerging opportunities. Non-integrated systems and inadequate planning and analysis capabilities force managers to make decisions without understanding the complete picture. In place of information, management is forcedto use well-educated guesses and assumptions. And results fromassumption-based activities can be devastating as each manager makesdifferent assumptions.To increase the impact of the strategic planning process, company executivesand planning managers must identify and accurately quantify theeconomic impact of strategic alternatives. Each potential strategicmeasure or action must consider market, process and financial dynamics, and how these dynamics impact the organization as a whole.This is the Strategic Planning System goal.Economic Trends: The macro economic environment analysis will identify trends such as changes in personal disposable income, interest rates, inflation and unemployment rates Political Trends: The macro political environment analysis will identify changes in the position politicians take on issues. A current example is a shift towards greener policies in the developed world. Technological Trends: The macro technological environment analysis will identify changes in the application of technology. A current example is a shift towards online transactions and in some areas a shift away from online transactions. Legal Trends: The macro legal environment analysis is closely linked to the political environment (politicians tend to make the laws), but also includes trends in court decisions such as liability compensation. Social/Cultural Trends: The macro social/cultural environment analysis will identify trends in societies beliefs, behaviours, values and norms. Such as the number of part time workers, attitudes towards global warming, make up of the family structure. Demographic Trends: The macro demographic analysis will identify trends in population growth at relevant ages for your industry (There maybe zero population growth in general but high growth in the number of people over 65), the population location TheBargaining Power of Your CustomersWhen analyzing the power of your customers you are really determining who needs who the most. This is driven, in part, by the number of prospective customers compared to the number of suppliers (suppliers are your competitors). A strong or powerful customer can play you off against your competitors. Your strong customers may ask forhigher quality or improved service at the same price or simply, for a lower price. Where a less strong customer may simply try to bluff you.In general The greater the number of customers the less commercial power they each haveThe greater the number of competitors you have the greater your customers negotiating powerHowever, other factors such as the significance of the customer to you or their ability to switch to your competitors also plays a part in determining who has the power.

A new competitor to yourindustry may erode some of your customer base, your challenge is to determine if it is likely that a new competitor will comealong and try to steal your customers away.New competitors are restricted by up front capital costs, access to technology or requirements to obtain licenses then your market position is likely to be protected. However, if there are no barriers to entry your position could be weakened. Tip:Sometimes a newcompetitor in your area is a good thing. For example if you own a craft shop and four more craft shops open near you, the collective scale of the five craft shops may attract significantly more people to the area resulting in growth of your business.You need to determine if a new entrant is a good or a bad thing for your business.
