Organizations large and small struggle with a strategic planning process that is too expensive, too slow, and doesn’t drive purposeful, flexible action. Well-intentioned organizations invest large amounts of time and resources in plans that quickly become obsolete.
The Strategic Fitness Planning (SFP) process relies on the Complexity Space Framework to focus on the more realistic concept of organizations achieving “dynamic fit” with their Ecosystems and Eco-subsystems over time. It pays attention to the patterns within organizations as well as the patterns of interaction between the organization and its surrounding environment. SFP then offers tools to influence those patterns – without the misleading “guarantees” often offered by traditional approaches.
