Strategic planning is the formal consideration of an organization'sfuture course. All strategic planning deals with at least one of threekey questions:1."What do we do?"2."For whom do we do it?"3."How do we excel?"In many organizations, this is viewed as a process for determiningwhere an organization is going over the next year or more, typically 3to 5 years, although some extend their vision to 20 years.In order to determine where it is going, the organization needs toknow exactly where it stands, then determine where it wants to goand how it will get there.
