It has two approaches: top-down; bottom-up

1. Top down strategic planning describes an approach to strategy formulation in which

corporate centre determines mission, strategic intent, objectives & strategies for the

org. as a whole & for parts. Unit managers are seen as implementers of pre-specified

corporate strategies

 

2. Bottom up strategic planning is the approach where corporate center doesn’t

conceptualize its strategic role, rather, they prefer to act as a catalyst & facilitator,

keeping things reasonably simple & keeping itself to broader strategic intent
