The major difference between Strategic Planning and Self Action Planning is that it is much more long term and the scale is larger. A successful strategic plan could provide a clear direction of the development of the company. It can align everyone in the company towards the same direction. Everyone can understand ones responsibilities and their individual contribution to the company goal. However, the strategic plan could not be designed by one alone if it wants to be used to achieve the above function. It could be done by a group of people who are critical to the strategic development of the company using PEST analysis, SWOT analysis and Stakeholder analysis as a tool to develop a checklist of action plans. And finally, making consensus on the priorities of the action plans. Strategic plans generated could then be more concrete and would gain more buy-ins from staff.
