In a Southeast Asian start-up setting, it goes without saying that the founder’s role includes being the head of strategic planning. And throughout the course of growth, the most common question founders will face is this: “How can our start-up better align all our resources to maximize our strategic success?”

Arguably, a leading cause of business failure is not having an effective strategic plan. If a business is unclear on the direction it is headed, then in the face of change, chaos could ensue as you don’t know what your priorities are and your employees are confused about the roles they play in the business.

The importance of corporate strategic planning is critical to business success, even if the planning process takes time and resources. As a business grows larger and more complex, strategy formulation will need to become more sophisticated, both to sustain growth and to help muster the leadership and resources needed to keep the business developing. Extensive data collection and analysis will also take place to allow strategic planning leaders to understand how their business is operating internally and how their conditions will develop in both current and potential markets to better achieve their business objectives.

If you’re not well-versed on the subject, joining the Strategic Planning Summit 2018 from March 13 to 16 in Singapore is highly recommended.
