Removing the obstacles to effective strategic planning.

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to explore the reasons for the decline in the importance and practice of strategic planning across American industry. The article identifies numerous bureaucratic obstacles to effective planning, and suggests how these obstacles can most effectively be eliminated by attacking their root causes. The article points out the risks to the planning process that are created by attempts to eliminate these obstacles. But, it concludes that unless these obstacles are removed and the promised financial returns from strategic business planning realized, the decline of long-term strategic business planning will continue.
