The Six-Step Strategic Planning Process

Awhile back, I shared highlights from the useful book, First-Time Leader, by George Bradt and Gillian Davis.

Here's one more gem from the book -- the authors' recommendations for a six-step strategic planning process:
  1. Set an aspirational destination (derived from the mission and vision).
  2. Assess the facts of the current reality and develop potential future scenarios.
  3. Identify options to bridge gaps between the current reality and the desired aspiration.
  4. Evaluate options under different scenarios. Make choices.
  5. Develop detailed plans that will deliver on selected strategies.
  6. Act, measure, adjust, and repeat.
