The untapped value of a Strategic Plan

The creation of a best practice financial model for a strategic plan is often viewed for a sole purpose. However there are many other circumstances, where the strategic plan can be of vital and immense value to a company.

How a Strategic Plan can help to demystify a company’s uncertainty

The current financial and economic uncertainty faced by businesses in the world poses a variety of strategic challenges to professional managers. One tool that can help to demystify or temper these strategic challenges is the application of a strategic plan across a company, its business units, assets and projects.
