Corporate planning is a systematic approach to strategic
decision making.
Long range planning and corporate planning
Long range planning in most cases assumes that the
current environment in relation to the organisation will

developing policies, and plans to achieve these objectives and allocating
resources, so as to implement the plans.

company’s CEO and executive team.

The systematic appraisal of the strengths and weaknesses
of the organization and matching these to the opportunities
and threats in the environment is crucial for survival in a
competitive market.
The larger the organization the more difficult is to change
quickly - hence the need to anticipate change that much
earlier in order to develop an appropriate response.
Corporate harmony is enhanced if the organization is seen
to have a clear strategy. People then know where the
organization is going and can tailor their contribution

Failure of corporate planning
Strategic plan usually introduced by CEO who might have
had exposure to it in a management development
programme(MDP).He hands over the task to a planner and
does not get involved
Some companies prepare a strategic plan and circulate it
among senior managers and externals consultants for their
comments. This approach fails since most of the time
senior managers neither have time nor the skills to look at
the future. Most of the time, they are found to be good at
budgeting but are unable to make an assessment of
external environment.
Many organisations emphasise on hard data. In a strategic
planning exercise, it is difficult to provide hard data in
every situation. This results in doubts being raised by
senior management in the organisation
Failure of corporate planning
Top management becomes so engrossed in current
problems that it does not spend enough time on strategic
planning process and the process gets discredited among
the other managers and staff.
Failure to modify the strategic planning system as
conditions within the company change.
Failure to create an appropriate climate for the success of
strategic planning.
Chief executive may spend too little time on planning.
Corporate planner tries to do all planning by himself or he
may be of a low calibre
Company tries to move into an advanced management area
before it is ready
