Strategic Planning Out-of-date? LO3568

Strategic planning has been around organizations for years. For many
months each year, managers gather in long sessions to update the
organizations five year plan with the latest hot-button projects.
Basically, traditional strategic planning as we know it is outdated. It
not only limits innovation by locking an orgainzation into one or two
courses of action, it often lacks flexibility. Unplanned changes are
inevitable, and traditional strategic planning only gets it the way of
dynamic changes.

Any comments, ideas, or insights? What alternatives to traditional
strategic planning exist or are being used in organizations?
