Programme Structure

Business Planning and Goal Setting is a process that requires careful planning and execution. By setting clear objectives, developing a comprehensive business plan, and regularly monitoring progress, businesses can increase their chances of success in a competitive marketplace.

Business planning is the process of developing a roadmap for achieving specific business goals and objectives. The business plan typically outlines the company’s mission, target market, products or services, marketing strategy, financial projections, and implementation timeline. The goal of business planning is to help organizations identify and evaluate potential risks and opportunities, and to provide a framework for decision-making.

Scanning the environment and setting goals are two important processes that businesses use to stay competitive and achieve success. Here’s an overview of each process:

competitive analysis and developing a market strategy can help a company achieve long-term success. By identifying opportunities to differentiate themselves from their competitors and targeting a specific customer segment, businesses can create a sustainable competitive advantage and increase their market share.

For more effective risk management, an organization needs to ascertain the risks it faces and evaluate them. Implementing the plan involves putting the strategies and actions identified in the business plan into action. Monitoring the plan involves tracking progress against the objectives and goals identified in the plan. Controlling the plan involves making adjustments to the plan as needed to ensure that it remains aligned with the goals and objectives of the business.

The objective of the risk assessment stage is to offer an evaluation of the possibility and the impact of the risks and opportunities that have been identified if they should occur. Undertaking the assessment provides several benefits, such as providing an order of pain or gain for each opportunity and risk that has been identified.
