Often overcomplicated by jargon and competing semantics, strategic planning is a business concept that is useful to all businesses and organizations no matter the size or resources. According to the 2006 M3 Planning Strategy Benchmark of 280 firms in the United States, businesses that use strategic planning are 12 percent more profitable, and of those firms whose top management had a high commitment to execute strategic planning, 80 percent reported that their sales volume increase during that year.
The new course joins the already impressive roster of strategic planning tools and services available from M3 Planning. The company also conducts a series of strategic planning webinar training classes in addition to a host of professional consulting and facilitation offerings. M3 Planning is committed to breaking down the barriers and demystifying the strategic planning process and has established itself as a source for everything related to the strategic planning process. The company's online strategic planning system, MyStrategicPlan, was awarded the 2007 Web Marketing Association's annual Internet Advertising Competition award for Best Application Service Provider Interactive Application and was a previous Standard of Excellence award winner. The company also offers strategic planning consulting and is a resource for books, articles, workshops and strategic planning facilitations.
