If your professional experience is anything like mine, you probably find yourself spending more time on daily issues than you would like. And this pattern probably prevents you from doing the long-term planning that would make your job easier in the future.
Organizations often experience this potentially crippling dynamic as well. With so many people focused on putting out the “fires” of the day, it can be difficult to dedicate the time and resources necessary to plan for the long-term and develop strategic direction for the organization. Unfortunately, without a winning strategic plan to guide it, any organization is likely to flounder in the wake of quickly shifting priorities. http://www.walsworth.com/blog/key-components-winning-strategic-plan
Simply put, strategic planning for an organization determines; where it is going, how it will get there, and when its goals are reached. Unlike business plans, which focus on a particular product, service, or program, strategic planning focuses on the entire organization. http://ncjp.org/saa-deskbook/elements-of-strategic-planning#sthash.x9UgVr1m.dpuf
