In a constantly changing economic and political environment, businesses are faced with a number of challenges. Ensuring your organisation has the right strategic plan will enable the success of your business. Our strategic planning process analyses key aspects of a business and develops strategies to maximise the potential for successful business growth. Key questions in the process include:

  1. What could be eliminated in the business which is not adding value or not profitable?
  2. What processes or services could be improved above industry benchmarks?
  3. What is the unique selling proposition (USP) for the business?

William Buck’s Corporate Advisory team are highly experienced, with strong skills in strategic planning across a variety of privately owned and not-for-profit organisations. We developed the strategic business planning process outlined below.

Our strategic planning process explained:

Capabilities & vision

  1. Where is the business today, what are its capabilities and what is the vision for the future?

Strategic environmental assessment

  1. Review of organisation including purpose, funding arrangements, interface with clients, measuring impact and outcomes on community, financial metrics, people and innovation
  2. Where and how is the organisation currently positioned?
  3. What differentiates the organisation?

Strategies to implement the vision

  1. How does the organisation need to change to grow?
  2. Develop strategies to support the business vision and growth (collaboration, process, improvement, innovation, differentiation)
  3. Get sign-off from the company to implement planned strategies in the business.

Strategy application

  1. Develop actions for the next 100 days and assign responsibilities
  2. Ongoing monitoring and advisory throughout the entire process to ensure strategies and actions are executed.
