CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

In order to assess the level of success or otherwise of a corporate body, its established strategic plans relative to the performance of the organization in all fronts of operations have to be ascertained. Formulating, implementing and the evaluation of a Strategic Plan indisputably become a major activity in both profit and not-for-profit organizations, especially, in commercial banks.

Strategic Plan provides the basic direction and rationale for determining the focus of an organization; and also provides the specification against which any organization may best decide what to do and how to do it. Simply put, it is a process for creating and describing a better future in measurable terms and the selection of the best means to achieve the results desired. It is important to note that not all planning is actually strategic even though they may be termed so. It is said that failure to plan leads to planning to fail.

Strategic planning standardizes the processes of goal/objective setting, situation analysis, alternative consideration, implementation and evaluation that enable an organization to attain its goals and objectives (Tapinos et. al. 2005). Sarason and Tegarden, (2003) asserted to the positive correlation between strategic planning and performance achievements as very beneficial for organizations. In their studies Dyson, (2000); McAdam and Bailie, (2002) further emphasized the need for organizations to align their strategies with the organization performance measurement systems.

According to Mohr and Zoghi (2006) corporate effectiveness is defined in many ways depending on the organizations goals and objectives in today’s market and also is dependent on the industry. In today’s market, corporate effectiveness is dependent on seven to ten attributes/characteristics. He further stated ten characteristics those highly effective organizations exhibits. They are, clarity of the organization’s mission, the power of leadership vision, adherence to shared values throughout the organization, cohesive, balanced team of leaders, clear and measurable goals and objectives, mechanisms for external feedback and input, a desire to learn continuously, pursuit of excellence, competent planning and decision-making processes, periodic celebrations of nobility of the work and collective accomplishments. Raze and Nawaz, (2011) concluded there are eight practices of highly effective organizations. They entail balanced values, commitment, culture, communication, partnering, collaboration, innovation and risk, and competitive passion. Stating what an organization is supposed to look like and how it should function is easy. The hard part is how to get there and practicing the characteristics of an effective organization.

Clearly, these statements emphasize the importance and the need for a comprehensive, systematic and dynamic strategic planning for every bamk which seeks to survive competition in the changing global competitive in the banking environment. Ansoff (1970) argues that planning generally produces better alignment and financial results in bank which are strategically managed than those which are not. This suggests an apparent correlation between strategic planning and the ultimate performance of a company in terms of its growth, profits, attainment of objectives and sustained competitiveness (Strickland, 2004).

The need for organizations to plan and monitor their activities in order to focus resources and efforts to ensure their future survival, consultants and educational programmes. Strategic planning is now a routine part of business or organizations with an accompanying set of beliefs and protocols that underpin the day-to-day practice. As indicated in the works of Ring and Perry (1985), Bryson and Roering (1987) as well as Nutt and Backoff (1993), the conceptualization that best recognizes and appropriates all the possibilities of strategy may be termed strategic. Each of the three aspects is essential to the others: Strategic Thinking, Strategic Planning, and Strategic Action.
