The first of its kind, this book delineates the industry standards for the field of strategic planning.
It is mainly a primer for executives of all types who wish to master effective strategic management. It is also the definitive exam prep guide for strategic planners who wish to become an Association for Strategic Planning (ASP) certified Strategic Planning Professional (SPP) or Strategic Management Professional (SMP).
Volume I is written with two explicit purposes. First, to help senior line executives better understand the fledgling field of strategic management. Second, to prepare candidates to take and pass the ASP Certification Exam(s).
The Standards of the Strategic Planning Field has been divided into two volumes that follow ASP’s rubric of Lead, Think, Plan, and Act—Volume I: Leading and Thinking Competencies and Volume II: Planning and Change Competencies. Each volume offers in-depth coverage of the standards and competencies for the field. Each competency is explained thoroughly in two full pages and has corresponding tasks to support it. Currently there is no where else that you will find such great detail and explanations.
Volume I and II act as a guide for understanding Strategic Management (Think-Lead-Plan-Act). Standards of the Strategic Planning Field Volumes I and II outline the comprehensive standards for the strategic planning field.
These books are useful to everyone involved in strategic planning, and particularly chief and senior executives, to whom these volumes are a complete primer in the field of strategic planning.
For those who plan to make strategic planning their career, a ASP (Association for Strategic Planning) certifications are a pivotal tool. While senior executives are responsible for the content of the strategic plan, Strategic Planning Professional (SPP) and Strategic Management Professional (SMP) designations facilitate staff leaders by providing the processes and structures necessary to carry out the strategic planning process.
The roles of senior executives as the leader and the SPP and SMP at the facilitator are crucial to applying Think-Lead-Plan-Act to an organization. By applying these standards and clear roles, you ensure successful strategic planning.
