I developed this comprehensive strategy for doing business planning and long-term planning. It is based on some old and some new principles of strategy design which take a systems perspective to help organizations. It is not a cookie cutter approach to strategy and it is designed to help an organization both short and long term. Years of conducting strategic planning sessions with organizations and teaching strategic planning in college has taught me the need to integrate art and science in conducting strategy sessions. The best strategies are fluid and dynamic and able to respond to predictive and emergent opportunities. Good plans are a result of a good planning process. Plans must be adaptable and can never be cast in stone.
