Operations and strategy are like two separate, but related, engines on a boat. Both engines propel the boat forward. And while forward movement can occur with only one engine, the boat moves faster and is more responsive if both are running efficiently. Presented by Christopher Stowell.

What is OPERATIONAL PLANNING? What does OPERATIONAL PLANNING mean? OPERATIONAL PLANNING meaning - OPERATIONAL PLANNING definition - OPERATIONAL PLANNING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Operational planning is the process of planning strategic goals and objectives to tactical goals and objectives. It describes milestones, conditions for success and explains how, or what portion of, a strategic plan will be put into operation during a given operational period, in the case of commercial application, a fiscal year or another given budgetary term. An operational plan is the basis for, and justification of an annual operating budget request. Therefore, a five-year strategic plan would typically require five operational plans funded by five operating budgets. Operational plans should establish the activities and budgets for each part of the organization for the next 1 – 3 years. They link the strategic plan with the activities the organization will deliver and the resources required to deliver them. An operational plan draws directly from agency and program strategic plans to describe agency and program missions and goals, program objectives, and program activities. Like a strategic plan, an operational plan addresses four questions: Where are we now? Where do we want to be? How do we get there? How do we measure our progress? The operations plan is both the first and the last step in preparing an operating budget request. As the first step, the operations plan provides a plan for resource allocation; as the last step, the OP may be modified to reflect policy decisions or financial changes made during the budget development process. Operational plans should be prepared by the people who will be involved in implementation. There is often a need for significant cross-departmental dialogue as plans created by one part of the organization inevitably have implications for other parts. Operational plans should contain: 1. clear objectives; 2. activities to be delivered; 3. quality standards; 4. desired outcomes; 5. staffing and resource requirements; 6. implementation timetables; and 7. a process for monitoring progress.

Is it possible to look ahead without stumbling over what’s in front of you? All too often companies spend precious time laying out long term strategic plans, only to discover that their maps are out of date in a month. Business strategy expert Martin Reeves offers a solution. He advocates transitioning from relying on a single "classical" approach to strategy and moving towards a more tailored approach to strategy and execution, selecting from 5 distinct patterns of success. Martin leads The Strategy Institute, BCG’s vehicle for exploring ideas from beyond the world of business, which have implications for business strategy. Current research themes include meta-strategy, evidence-based transformation, corporate longevity and strategies of sustainability. Martin joined BCG in London in 1989 and later moved to Tokyo, where he led the Japan health care practice for eight years and was responsible for BCG’s business with Western clients. He has led strategy assignments in healthcare, consumer goods, financial services, and industrial goods in Japan, the US, and Europe. He has authored numerous articles on strategy, a book on “Adaptive Advantage” and another – “Your Strategy Needs a Strategy” – will be published by Harvard Business Press in Spring 2015. About the TED Institute: We know that innovative ideas and fresh approaches to challenging problems can be discovered inside visionary companies around the world. The TED Institute helps surface and share these insights. Every year, TED works with a group of select brands to identify internal ideators, inventors, connectors, and creators.

Murphy Danahy proposes that we must shift our paradigms about what makes a “good” military leader, and that failing to do so may cause us to lose our next big war. Utilizing several psychological studies about the way that people are hard wired to think, Danahy believes that he has found the key to improving military recruiting and retention programs. Murphy Danahy is a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Army. As a Cadet at the United States Military Academy, he was a Psychology major and was particularly interested in how US Army leadership development models have changed over time. He often applied psychological theories to normative analyses on the Army’s leadership evaluation methods.

What is STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT? What does STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT mean? STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT meaning - STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT definition - STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Strategic management involves the formulation and implementation of the major goals and initiatives taken by a company's top management on behalf of owners, based on consideration of resources and an assessment of the internal and external environments in which the organization competes. Strategic management provides overall direction to the enterprise and involves specifying the organization's objectives, developing policies and plans designed to achieve these objectives, and then allocating resources to implement the plans. Academics and practicing managers have developed numerous models and frameworks to assist in strategic decision making in the context of complex environments and competitive dynamics. Strategic management is not static in nature; the models often include a feedback loop to monitor execution and inform the next round of planning. Michael Porter identifies three principles underlying strategy: creating a "unique and valuable position", making trade-offs by choosing "what not to do", and creating "fit" by aligning company activities with one another to support the chosen strategy. Dr. Vladimir Kvint defines strategy as "a system of finding, formulating, and developing a doctrine that will ensure long-term success if followed faithfully." Corporate strategy involves answering a key question from a portfolio perspective: "What business should we be in?" Business strategy involves answering the question: "How shall we compete in this business?" In management theory and practice, a further distinction is often made between strategic management and operational management. Operational management is concerned primarily with improving efficiency and controlling costs within the boundaries set by the organization's strategy. Strategic management involves the formulation and implementation of the major goals and initiatives taken by a company's top management on behalf of owners, based on consideration of resources and an assessment of the internal and external environments in which the organization competes. Strategy is defined as "the determination of the basic long-term goals of an enterprise, and the adoption of courses of action and the allocation of resources necessary for carrying out these goals." Strategies are established to set direction, focus effort, define or clarify the organization, and provide consistency or guidance in response to the environment. Strategic management involves the related concepts of strategic planning and strategic thinking. Strategic planning is analytical in nature and refers to formalized procedures to produce the data and analyses used as inputs for strategic thinking, which synthesizes the data resulting in the strategy. Strategic planning may also refer to control mechanisms used to implement the strategy once it is determined. In other words, strategic planning happens around the strategic thinking or strategy making activity. Strategic management is often described as involving two major processes: formulation and implementation of strategy. While described sequentially below, in practice the two processes are iterative and each provides input for the other.

http://GatewayCFO.com - Where is your business going? Have you looked at your company's plan, both strategic and financially? In this installment of "What Does a CFO DO" we talk about the CFO's role in the strategic and financial planning process. For a small business owner, with a company of any size, it's critical that you have a trusted advisor on your team to guide you through this process. Often times, the first step is to work with your CFO to develop and implement a planning process. This includes a structure for developing annual business plans (including detailed financial budgets), and a system to monitor and report on variances from the plan. If your business is lacking this structure, it's difficult to achieve accountability and maximize performance. It is often the CFO and the business managers that lead, refine, and implement these processes. This planning process is important for many financial reasons, one of which being that it will allow your business to be run in a more controlled manner. Capital expenditures should ideally be made within the context of a pre-established budget. Somebody wants to buy a new tractor, or a new computer...what's in the budget? Your CFO should establish these budgets annually and update as needed to adapt to changing business conditions. Along the same lines, the CFO should evaluate potential purchases and leases, ensuring that they not only fit within the capital budget but also offer the best option for the company's needs. Is your company looking at growth or expansion? This requires in-depth planning to insure that your staffing, facilities, and cash resources are up to the task. Your CFO should incorporate growth implications into your financial projections. The CFO should lead monthly and quarterly meetings with management to review variances from the budget, and present budget updates for the future. It is typically the CFO's role to challenge management on their assumptions, considering their past performance and the company's constraints. Operations and sales personnel are often optimistic in nature, and it's important that the business is operating from a conservative viewpoint. Overstating/projecting your profit or revenue does nothing but harm. Aside from the financial planning, it is also the CFO's responsibility to assist the owner/CEO in the development of the company's mission statement, objectives, and strategies. A CFO can not be focused solely on numbers. They must have operations and general management experience, and be well versed in marketing and sales. At a minimum, your CFO should be working closely with department heads to ensure they are tapped in to the pulse of the company. With this visceral understanding of the company's capabilities and strengths, the CFO should prove to be a trusted advisor to the owner/CEO in charting the organizations near future.

Managing the implementation and execution of strategy is easily the most demanding and time-consuming part of the strategic management process. Good strategy execution entails that managers pay careful attention to how key internal business processes are performed and see to it that employees’ efforts are directed toward the accomplishment of desired operational outcomes. The task of implementing and executing the strategy also necessitates an ongoing analysis of the efficiency and effectiveness of a company’s internal activities and a managerial awareness of new technological developments that might improve business processes. Successful organizations achieve operating excellence and execute strategy proficiently.

To be truly effective, strategic planning must be driven down through all 3 levels of your business - because each level of planning must address a different question: How will you grow? Where should you focus? How will you compete? Answering each question requires a different set of tools, and successful plan deployment requires using the "right tools" to answer the "right question" at each level.

What is STRATEGIC CONTROL? What does STRATEGIC CONTROL mean? STRATEGIC CONTROL meaning - STRATEGIC CONTROL definition - STRATEGIC CONTROL explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Strategic control is a term used to describe the process used by organizations to control the formation and execution of strategic plans; it is a specialised form of management control, and differs from other forms of management control (in particular from operational control) in respects of its need to handle uncertainty and ambiguity at various points in the control process. Strategic control is also focused on the achievement of future goals, rather than the evaluation of past performance. Vis: The purpose of control at the strategic level is not to answer the question:' 'Have we made the right strategic choices at some time in the past?" but rather "How well are we doing now and how well will we be doing in the immediate future for which reliable information is available?" The point is not to bring to light past errors but to identify needed corrections to steer the corporation in the desired direction. And this determination must be made with respect to currently desirable long-range goals and not against the goals or plans that were established at some time in the past. As with other control processes, strategic control processes are at their core cybernetic in nature: using one or more 'closed loop' controls to ensure that any observed deviations from expected activity or outcomes are highlighted to managers who can then intervene to correct / adjust the organisation's future activities. John Preble noted the need for these controls to be 'forward looking' when used to control strategy, to give controls that are "future-directed and anticipatory". Strategic control systems cannot "...wait for a strategy to be executed before getting any feedback on how well it is working. Since this might take several years..." A related concern for strategic control processes is the amount of time and effort required for the process to work: if either is too great the process will either be ineffective or be ignored by the organisation. Various authors have proposed that all strategic control systems necessarily comprise a small set of standard elements, the absence of any one of which makes strategic control impossible to achieve (e.g. Goold & Quinn, Muralidharan). The four elements proposed by Muralidharan are: 1. the articulation of the strategic outcomes being sought 2. the description of the strategic activities to be carried out (attached to specific managed resources) in pursuit of the required outcomes; 3. the definition of a method to track progress made against these two elements (usually via the monitoring of a small number of performance measures and associated target values); 4. the identification of an effective intervention mechanism that would allow observers (usually the organisation’s managers) to change / correct / adjust the organisation's activities when targets are not achieved. These elements imply an active involvement by senior managers in the determination of the strategic activities pursued by the component parts of an organisation, and this has led some to observe that strategic control is most effective in organisations that focus on a single market or area of activity. In organisations undertaking a mix of diverse / unrelated activities (e.g. traditional conglomerates) simpler forms of financial control are more common and perhaps more effective.

Of the four management functions - planning, organizing, leading, and controlling, planning is considered the most fundamental. Everything else stems from planning. The economic, political, and social turmoil of recent years has sparked a renewed interest in organizational planning, particularly planning for crises and unexpected events. A goal is desired future state that the organization wants to realize. Goals are important because organizations exist for a purpose, and goals define and state that purpose. A plan is a blueprint specifying the resource allocations, schedules, and other actions necessary for attaining goals. The concept of planning usually incorporates both goals and plans. Planning means determining the organization’s goals and defining the means for achieving them. There are four levels of goals and plans in an organization – mission, strategic, tactical, and operational goals and plans. The formal mission statement is a broadly stated definition of an organization’s basic business scope and operations that distinguishes it from similar types of organizations. Strategic plans include action steps by which an organization intends to attain strategic goals. Strategic goals are a broad statement of where an organization wants to be in the future; pertains to the organization as a whole rather than to specific divisions or departments. Operational plans identify the specific procedures or processes needed at lower levels of the organization, such as individual departments and employees. Operational goals are a specific, measurable result that is expected from departments, work groups, and individuals. Planning helps managers think about the future rather than thinking merely in terms of day-to-day activities. Management by objectives (MBO) is a method whereby managers and employees define goals for every department, project, and person and use them to monitor subsequent performance. Many companies have used MBO, and most managers think it is an effective management tool. Most managers believe that they are better oriented toward goal achievement when MBO is used.
