Strategic Planning traditionally concentrates on two areas of investigation and planning.
•Micro-economic analysis of competitive markets which has sought to explain profitability differences amongst firms. Most quantitative research seeks to support hypothetical explanations for profitability by the use of correlation methods.
•Scrutiny of firms' cost-structures and margins, generally termed "Value-chain analysis," which is looking for drivers of cost and value in order to:
◦to discover opportunities where costs can be reduced or value added, so as to boost profitability
◦to seek opportunities where adding cost in one area can either reduce costs elsewhere or enable higher pricing
◦to seek opportunities where cost and value improvements can arise by collaboration with suppliers and customers

Both value-chain analysis and statistical approaches to understanding & enhancing profitability are essentially static tools.

It is already very difficult to manage a dynamic target environment with static management tools, so when it comes to Strategic Planning the resulting ‘Lottery Environment’ becomes much less persuasive.

In Strategy Dynamics on the other hand, we advise clients to create strategies that
•Plan tomorrow's performance using a dynamic measurement and planning environment
•Enhance the ability to increase understanding of performance stakeholder value-maps and their dynamics
•Enable the organization to build and manage the necessary competency architecture
•Improve the ability of the organization’s competency and resource architectures to create successful concepts at ever increasing speeds
