Strategic planning is as important looking at a map before setting out on a cross country roadtrip. Think about how many hours and how much money goes into driving from one coast to the next. Imagine all of the stops along the way, as well as the opportunities for unplanned circumstances such as bad weather, traffic jams, deer crossing the road or the chance to stop and see "the world's largest frying pan".
The strategic planning process takes you through a step-by-step process of identifying the road ahead, and with each step you create more opportunity for accelerated success.
