Developing a Strategic Plan
A strategic plan is a document used to communicate with the organization the organization's goals, the actions needed to achieve those goals and all of the other critical elements developed during the planning exercise.
Developing a strategic plan might seem like an overwhelming process, but with Price & Associates consulting team, it’s done easily and with the highest level of professionalism. Here’s an example of a common four-step approach:
Analysis or assessment, where an understanding of the current internal and external environments is developed
Strategy formulation, where high level strategy is developed and a basic organization level strategic plan is documented
Strategy execution, where the high level plan is translated into more operational planning and action items
Evaluation or sustainment / management phase, where ongoing refinement and evaluation of performance, culture, communications, data reporting, and other strategic management issues occurs

If you haven’t already done so, take the time to think about your strategic plan now. It will help keep your small business on track and you focused on the future.
