Strategic and Financial Planning
Every organization should have both a strategic plan and a financial plan. Although these two seem have two different purposes, they are both needed in order for the company to survive. Strategic planning is the process of determining a company’s long-term goals and then identifying the best approach for achieving those goals (Investor Words, 2009). Financial planning is the long-term process of wisely managing finances so you can achieve the goals while at the same time negotiating the financial barriers that inevitably arise in every stage of the company’s

Lately many large and small organisations became more interested in strategic planning and its probable benefits (Parker, 1990). Strategic planning keeps on having a very important role in an increasingly complicated and vague environment since it affects the organisationâ€™s performance positively (Raman, 2009). However, separating planners from doers is one of the downsides in strategic planning (Parker, 1990). For example, the risk of developing to some extent an impracticable and inappropriate set of plans by a small group of professional to address the desires and guidelines of the organisation increases (Parker, 1990).
Therefore, it is said to be that involving middle level managers

developing employees into succession management plans, then the outcome will be skewed and potentially result in a poor choice being made (Belcourt et al., 2013). A 360° performance appraisal could be more objective than subjective depending on the type of performance appraisal used. This creates managers that are potentially identifying the wrong candidates to become part of the succession management plan, especially if they have a narrow focus and only identify their direct reports.
Since succession management takes a lot of time and planning, having that effort go to waste by hiring externally is usually avoided. However, by eliminating external recruitment sources and

It is evident that strategic planning is important when it comes to decision making for many marketing managers. The article The Big Lie of Strategic Planning by Roger Martin, suggests that choosing a strategy strictly based on a certain process “entails making decisions that explicitly cut off possibilities and option” (Martin, 2014). It speaks on the fear that many marketing managers face when challenged with decisions because the wrong decision can surely hurt his or her career, as well as the company. Martin explains it is taught that executives that problems can be solved with the the tested “tools” and learned research processes, but the downfall to this is the expensive
