Executive Report: Strategic Planning

Book / Report | Free | Jun 23, 2015

What does the future have in store for us? How do we respond? How can we help shape this future? This report addresses these fundamental questions for business strategists.

Planning for the future is an essential part of business leadership. Traditional approaches to strategic planning have limits, particularly when assessing long-term risks from issues such as climate change. Increasing change and complexity make it difficult to accurately project the future.

In 2013, business leaders in South Africa asked: “How can businesses engage in strategic planning that is linked to a shared vision for a sustainable future?” In response, NBS South Africa (SA) commissioned a systematic review conducted by Dr Martina Linnenluecke, Dr Retha de Villiers Scheepers, Mr Sarel Grönum, and Ms. Chanel Venter. The researchers reviewed 195 academic and industry sources.

This guide summarizes their findings.
