Strategic Planning

Strategic planning helps to organize the company over the long term and transposes the vision of the company’s future in terms of different key aspects of company management. These aspects include turnover, margins, markets, products, resources, quality, security and corporate image.

This planning aims to better align the many means (e.g. design and production resources, sales force resources, investments, support services) with the objectives (e.g. new product introduction, new market penetration) while integrating the ups and downs that could prevent the plans from going smoothly.

Strategic planning can be regularly adjusted using data from the tactical and operational levels.

“What if?” Scenarios

What if scenarios allow senior management to measure the impact of different types of events on the company’s long-term goals.

Based on business modeling and the use of PlanningForce’s algorithms, management can recalculate the impact of any type of change in just a few minutes on long-term objectives (such as changes in market demand or the cost of resources).

Thanks to these impact calculations, strategies can be designed to counter the most important risks. Companies can therefore prepare to face the worst-case scenario… or, on the contrary, to maximize the positive effects triggered by certain opportunities.

Dashboards and Analytics

The creation of dashboards enables Senior Management to keep an eye on the effectiveness of the strategies implemented, this is primarily thanks to the analysis of the evolution of certain key performance indicators. Targeted analyzes provide management with a SWOT-style view of business operations.

These analyzes reveal the company’s strengths and weaknesses. Insight into potential opportunities to seize are also provided, as well as the risks and threats it faces.

Although dashboards and analyzes are indispensable tools for strategic steering, it is the organization and monitoring of operational activities as conducted and recorded by PlanningForce’s L2 to L4 integrated solutions that provide the information needed to make strategic steering a success.
