In this tutorial, we learn how to avoid common strategic planning pitfalls. First, you will need to look at all the common pitfalls. You want to have ownership for the planning process. Everyone that is involved needs to have the tools to get the goals accomplished. Lack of communication is a big problem, so have everyone on the same page with how to talk and communicate what's going on. Decision making should be scattered with different managers and they should be guiding the rest of the staff. Don't get overwhelmed and have too much stress or things to accomplish.
