A large number of organisations base their business strategy on the intuition and industry experience of their managers. This form of management could fall on the short term and on the inputs that receive continuously, almost always based on the network of relationships that managers have.
In an environment as dynamic and changing as the current one, in addition to the short term, it is necessary to have a medium and long term vision. Directing involves making the right decision at the right time. Do I consolidate my position in the market, or do I risk growing? Will I hire more personal or do I resort to subcontracting? Will the regulatory framework of my product or services change? Invest? What subsidies do I have? Do we have to open up to new markets? With what guarantees? Is the absorption of a competing company a valid mode of growth? How do the leading companies in my sector work? When is it convenient to transfer the management of my company? How to do it in the best conditions? If something fails, what is the best contingency plan?
The continuous and agile adaptation of the company requires more than intuition and sector experience. It involves data, figures, external and internal information; in short, a strategic plan must clarify the current situation and facilitate the planning and monitoring of the company’s future positioning.
The increasing complexity of the financial world forces management to be active. You do not always have sufficient means or information to analyse all the implications; however, how these implications are resolved will lead to success or failure in the future.
