"Where there is no vision, the people perish." (Proverbs, 29:18)
How to move from Traditional planning to Strategic planning:
The new resolutions for 2017 were set. The short-term annual goals and the long-term goals were said and wrote down. Let started with the simple step moving on from Random planning to Systematic planning. Second step, from Reactive decision making to Proactive decision making, and from Incremental evaluation to Synoptic evaluation in the line with bringing your isolated (individual or departmental) decision making priorities with team decision making and organizational mission. Why? Because everyone is the mission-maker. We cannot guess the results. However, we can predict the results by strategic planning and evaluating all possible outcomes.
As Winston Churchill said: "It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see."
