    What Is a Visual Strategic Planning Tool?

    Strategic planning is a review and planning process, which consists of developing strategies, implementing and evaluating them to achieve business goals and objectives of an organization.

    How to Create Visual Strategic Planning Tools?

    • Clarify the company’s mission statement which should include the purpose and the values of the company, and the company’s vision.
    • Analyze the organization’s internal and external environment by conducting a SWOT analysis and Porter’s Five Forces analysis or a PESTLE analysis.
    • Using a gap analysis, identify the gaps between the current state of your company and its vision.
    • Define where your company should be in the future. Use scenario planning to get an idea of possible futures and decide how they will affect your strategic objectives.
    • Pick the right strategic priorities or the areas that can make the most of your vision, and set goals.
    • Using a flowchart, map out the individual steps you need to take to reach the goals you set.
    • Share and communicate the strategic plan with your team to make sure that everyone is aligned. Assign each task to each individual or department.
    • Embed the various diagrams created in your company intranet or other internal websites or share it with the team so they can easily access the necessary documents.
