Some claim strategic planning in today's quickly evolving technical environment is no longer practical or necessary, but strategy stays an important component of identifying specific company-wide objectives and how to attain them. It’s about working in the right direction on your long-term goal.
Adel Singh, Group CEO Datar Security Services Group tells us why every company must have a Strategic Business Plan and why it is important for the growth of the business.
“You need to understand what you are and what you are not before you begin strategic planning because the manner you work can either create or crack a good execution.”- says Adel Singh, CEO

There are numerous tools accessible to teach us methodologies for strategic planning. Unfortunately, the way to implement a strategic plan in the real world is something that these resources cannot teach.
Plan to Fit Business Goals and Compliance Standards
“To get started, you need to be precise about your business mission: why does your business exist, and what do you want it to achieve? The goal of the company lets you create a perfect plan for your business, keeping all the points in mind and creating a precise plan just for your business,” says Adel Singh
Strategic planning offers the general direction for the security program and prioritizes initiatives and related tasks in the execution plan, while at the same time encouraging compliance with suitable laws and current procedures related to security. This strategic plan can significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of security decisions when completed as arranged in the plan.
Once you have set the goals of the business, set a strategic plan for each goal. Set goals that extend your resources and capabilities. Once this process is completed you can start the process of strategic planning and determine the direction in which you want to take your business.
Synchronize and Focus on short-term and long-term goals accordingly
Committing to short-term goals will assist you to remain focused and connected while minimizing distractions, this synchronization enables you to take rapid steps while moving in a definite path as well. It is simpler to be precise with shorter-term goals and the more particular you are, the better you will be prepared to evaluate your progress.
Effective approach shifts the focus from day-to-day problems to your broader and longer-term business objectives. Long term goals assist you with the big picture, this plan is effective because it offers a timeframe, a schedule and a continuous development plan.
“It is important to add planned checkpoints of small strategies along the way of your long-term goals, a step-by-step action plan execution and regularly having an eye on the tasks can be a smart move in the growth of the organization.” -says Adel Singh
To sum up, measurable goals are crucial for an organisation as they enable executives to evaluate progress and development and stay on the right track.
DSSG team, a helping hand in our strategic plan
“It was a big and trustworthy step to involve the DSSG team in the strategic plan, we decided to get a variety of ideas and merged them to create our objectives, these objectives were correctly accomplished as each person had a good understanding of what mission he/she had to fulfil.”-says Adel Singh
Strategic planning is a significant instrument to bring together your team and motivate them to work together. Employees always have distinct views of how the company is operated, when a team is involved in a plan, outstanding ideas come together. A planning team consisting of those people who can add value to the planning process is the most effective strategic planning process.
No one person can be an expert at everything, but when you combine a different set of minds working altogether to solve a problem it can make a lot of difference.
For an organisation, strategic planning is essential as it gives a sense of path and describes measurable objectives. Strategic planning is a useful tool for guiding daily activities and for assessing progress and changing policies in the future. To create the most of strategic planning, your business should carefully consider the strategic goals and then back them up with meaningful, carefully investigated measures to evaluate outcomes. Remember that strategic planning can change the manner your company works both organizationally and culturally.
