How can you help your students understand strategic planning?

The intention is to give a competitive advantage and return on investment to the organization.

Strategic planning determines where an organization is going over the next year or more, how it's going to get there and how to measure if it got there or not. The focus of a strategic plan is usually on the entire organization.   The development of the plan depends on the leadership, the culture, the complexity of the organization, the size of the organization and the systems that are present. Through a systems thinking approach, planning will place equal emphasis on the plan, strategies and change management processes in support of customer satisfaction.  The intention is to give a competitive advantage and return on investment to the organization.

Business planning on the other hand is the creation of a plan relating to specific business lines, products or services.  Similar to strategic planning a business plan will outline specific targets for a particular product or service.  The plan will be individualized versus organizationally focused.
