Confusion of strategic and operational planning - Strategic Management

Operational planning is the day-by-day and month by month planning for what your organisation is doing; strategic planning determines the entire direction of your organisation, including what it's not doing but should be doing. The two forms of planning must be integrated, but must not be confused.

‘Involvement’ in terms of strategic planning means the full participation of the top management team in the production of the strategic plan. This one might term as essential involvement for long-term planning success. For operational plans ‘involvement’ is different. Here I believe the principle should be that the head of each operational area must be responsible for his own plan, and should certainly enable all of his senior managers and as many of his more junior managers as the circumstances indicate, to play a part in the planning process.
