Strategic Planning - definitions

Strategic Planning - The top USPS management decision process that focuses on the longer range direction of the Postal Service and establishes the means by which that direction is reached. It includes the definition of missions and objectives - how the Postal Service enterprise sees its purpose and where it wants to go. Strategic planning provides the basic direction and focus of the organization, the big picture. Some of the organization's basic strategic decisions might relate to questions such as: What business are we in? What business should we be in, now and in the future? What should be the geographical scope of operations? What are our research and development goals? How should products be researched? Where are we the weakest? Strongest?
