Strategic planning is a dynamic process that looks into the future and involves every area of the business. Emphasis will be placed on preparing minority supplier development plans that support corporate goals. This includes managing the overall process such as the tracking of milestones, establishing a timeline detailing sequence of activities, resource allocation and monitoring risks (both quantitative and qualitative) for decision-making.
