Strategic Planning Process
Explain the basic steps in the planning process
The steps included in designing a strategic plan are portrayed underneath. Although the process may appear rational and systematic, it is regularly iterative and evolves considerably over time. Furthermore, it is subject to political pressure and will be changed likewise. Some key planning efforts may not include all the steps depicted. The components and process depicted in the following segment must be altered depending on the context.
In a strategic planning process, the first step is to address the aspects relating to current organizational situation and the factors required for the success of the next steps. This includes the examination of the project's history and evolving contexts (both external and internal). esponses to the organizational priorities include attention to strengths and shortcomings and determine how to benefit from strengths (Sinofsky & Iansiti, 2010).
The next phase in the process is to identify the….

Strategic Planning and Implementation
Over the last several years, identity theft has become a major issue that a number of individuals are dealing with. This is because criminals are using various techniques to be able to gain access to a host of personal information including: bank accounts, credit card / social security numbers and the date of birth. Once this occurs, is when they can assume the identity of this person and begin obtaining credit in their name without the victim being aware of what is happening.
Evidence of this can be seen with a study that was conducted by Javelin Strategy and esearch. They found that in 2010 there were a total of 8.1 million people that had their identity stolen. Moreover, the costs for these kinds of crimes were $37 million. (Singletary, 2011) This is significant, because it is illustrating how identity theft is continuing to be a major problem….

Strategic planning VS strategic intent thinking
Conventional strategic planning refers to guides created by an Organization or a business to map out how it will reach its goals and setting the foundation to the entire organization to know what is expected of them. This provides the organization with the clear view on how to achieve a stated vision for the chosen potential market target and how a company can attend and serve its customers consistently effectively so as to get profits all the time and not losses.
Eton Lawrence (1999) describes Strategic intent thinking as the purpose the organization is striving for or the intent goals of the company which helps in long-term planning of how to distribute work effectively among its members so as to achieve their goals.
Strategic intent thinking provides focus on members of an organization on how to divide their energy among themselves as they focus on their attention,….

Strategic planning refers to an organizational management activity used in order to set priorities, focus resources and energy, strengthen organizational goals, and ensure that both the stakeholders and employees are working towards common goals. It also assists in establishing agreement around the intended results and/or outcomes, assessing and adjusting the organization's scope of responding to any possible changes within the environment. Strategic management is the inclusive collection of the ongoing processes and activities, which an organization may utilize in systematic coordination and alignment of their resources and actions with respect to the organization's mission, vision and strategies towards organizational success. In accordance with good strategic planning and/or management, determination and hard work towards achieving the organization's goal, Ken is capable of achieving his missions and plans of standing the organization to its firm roots and making it operate like the other successful healthcare organizations.

Present how strategic planning, performance improvement, and information systems are interrelated and fundamental to the delivery of quality health care.
Over the last several years, the health care system has been facing considerable challenges. This is because the total number of patients is rapidly increasing and costs are rising. Evidence of this can be seen with a study that was conducted by the Kaiser Foundation. They found that insurance premiums for employer sponsored plans have increased by 97%. Commenting about these issues the report observed, "Health expenditures in the United States neared $2.6 trillion in 2010, over ten times the $256 billion spent in 1980. Addressing this growing burden continues to be a major policy priority. Furthermore, the United States has been in a recession for much of the past decade, resulting in higher unemployment and lower incomes for many Americans. These conditions have put even more attention on health….

The research completed also shows that both subjective and quantified approaches to strategic planning for externally-oriented nonprofits also tend to create this inferred ownership of the strategic plan, its goals, and therefore increase its probability of success. Clearly having an external focus with a "customer" who is to be served is a highly effective aspect of a nonprofits' strategic planning process. Crittenden & Crittenden (2000) also make the point that nonprofit organizations researched have both instrumental and expressive tendencies at the same time, a deliberate strategy taken to make sure that individual constituencies' goals and objectives are met. This hybrid approach to strategic planning requires a nonprofit organization to be highly agile, informal, and collaborative in its information and knowledge management.

This component of planning functions on the basis of the drive to protect the company, as far as possible, from damage by means of external disaster or internal weakness. Contingency planning, then, allows a company to resume operations as soon as possible after a disaster or crisis. It ensures that the company has components in place that promotes its core health and resiliency. In contrast to the others, this type of planning focuses on possible realities rather than concrete factors or reactions to existing factors.
According to Kurtz, MacKenzie and Snow (2009, p. 51), marketing planning focuses on implementing strategic planning activities in terms of presenting the product to the customer in a way that would generate sales. Like tactical planning, this is also a short-range planning system that will necessarily change as the environment and result reveals its strengths and weaknesses. This component also includes the communication strategy the….

All of the above represents the first part of strategic planning. You must know where you are now before you can determine where you should be going. The next step is to analyze the alternatives. It is important to remember that the current list of alternatives is not the sum total of options available. The company should be as creative as possible in the alternative-generating process. The external analysis should help with this by identifying opportunities in the marketplace that may not have been part of the initial idea generation process.
hatever alternative is chosen, it should be congruous with the company's existing competencies. Ideally, GIFC will have some source of sustainable competitive advantage that can be leveraged in the new business. Even if not, the strategy should play to the company's strengths, but be manageable within the company's constraints. Because this is a small, family-owned firm, GIFC should consider how….

The organization I will be writing about is the Human esources Campaign (HC). The HC bills itself as the "largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans" and it represents more than 1.5 million members. The HC was founded in 1980. Its activities are focused on the political sphere, where it helps to finance electoral candidates who support equal rights, engages in education programs and mobilizes grassroots actions (HC, 2014).
Sherman (2007) notes that the organization should begin the strategic planning process with an understanding of the organization, its objectives and its own internal structures, among other factors. Thus, it is important to understand, for example, the strengths and weaknesses of the organization. Strategic planning, as Aguilar (n.d.) notes, is the first step in strategic management, but it is also the most important step.
There are 150 employees of HC and countless volunteers.….
