INTRODUCTION

Strategic planning is about positioning the organization for a future which will be different from the past. Almost everything we do in today’s public or private (business) world invokes heavy competitive pressure: attracting foreign investments, “customer” habits change, new competitors appear, and factors outside your control could delay your project. We therefore need to think strategically, plan in ways which are execution-able, and make decision as to what actions to take to minimize disruptions to our plans.
