CORPORATE PLANNING Presentor GEROME L. AMPER BSEM-5
CORPORATE PLANNING Corporate planning is a systematic approach to clarifying corporate objectives, strategic decision making and checking progress toward objectives. A corporate plan is a set of instructions to managers of an organization describing what role each department is expected to fulfill in the achievement of organization's objectives.

The Strategic Planning Process 1. MISSION AND OBJECTIVES The mission statement describes the company's business vision, including the unchanging values and purpose of the firm and forward-looking visionary goals that guide the pursuit of future opportunities. Guided by the business vision, the firm's leaders can define measurable financial and strategic objectives.
The Strategic Planning Process 2. ENVIRONMENTAL SCAN Includes the following components: a. Internal/External Analysis of the firm b. Analysis of the firm's industry c. External macro-environment
The Strategic Planning Process
SWOT Analysis A scan of the internal and external environment is an important part of the strategic planning process. Environmental factors internal to the firm usually can be classified as strengths (S) or weaknesses (W), and those external to the firm can be classified as opportunities (O) or threats (T). Such an analysis of the strategic environment is referred to as a SWOT analysis.
SWOT Analysis The SWOT analysis provides information that is helpful in matching the firm's resources and capabilities to the competitive environment in which it operates. As such, it is instrumental in strategy formulation and selection.
SWOT Analysis Strengths A firm's strengths are its resources and capabilities that can be used as a basis for developing a competitive advantage. Weaknesses The absence of certain strengths may be viewed as a weakness.
SWOT Analysis Opportunities The external environment analysis may reveal certain new opportunities for profit and growth. Threats Changes in the external environmental also may present threats to the firm.
SWOT Analysis To see example of SWOT Analysis, click link below:
SWOT Matrix A firm should not necessarily pursue the more lucrative opportunities. Rather, it may have a better chance at developing a competitive advantage by identifying a fit between the firm's strengths and upcoming opportunities. In some cases, the firm can overcome a weakness in order to prepare itself to pursue a compelling opportunity.
SWOT Matrix S-O strategies pursue opportunities that are a good fit to the company's strengths. W-Ostrategies overcome weaknesses to pursue opportunities. S-T strategies identify ways that the firm can use its strengths to reduce its vulnerability to external strengths. W-T strategies establish a defensive plan to prevent the firm's weaknesses from making it highly susceptible to external threats.
