a Vision, a Mission or simply a Just Cause: By Simon
3 Things that Make a MEANINGFUL Vision | Simon Sinek
Whether you call it a vision, mission, or Just Cause - in order to be worthy of usage, it must be these three things: -
1- Resilient: able to withhold cultural or economic change - المناعه 
2- Inclusive: put into words that inspire us -    الشموليه
3- Service-oriented:    Directly connected with customers NEEDS تقديم الخدمات 
the primary benefactor cannot be the contributor,
- Customer Service. - Customer Satisfaction.  - Customer Happiness.
  المرونه في التأقلم مع البيئة الداخلية و الخارجية
و الشمولية يؤمن بها جميع الموظفين و يساهمون في تحقيقها
و التركيز على تقديم الخدمة و التحقيق المنفعة للاخرين ... و ليس لتحقيق مصلحة ذاتية

Porter's Generic Strategies MindTools           

1- Cost Leader   2- Differentiation     3- Focus 

According to Michael Porter, strategies allow organizations to gain competitive advantage from three different bases:

1-Low-Cost leadership,   2- Differentiation, 3- Focus.

Porter calls these bases generic strategies.

1- Low-Cost leadership emphasizes producing standardized products at a very low per-unit cost for consumers who are price-sensitive. Two alternative types of cost leadership strategies can be defined.

Type 1 is a low-cost strategy that offers products or services to a wide range of customers at the lowest price available on the market.

Type 2 is a best-value strategy that offers products or services to a wide range of customers at the best price-value available on the market. The best value strategy aims to offer customers a range of products or services at the lowest price available compared to a rival's products with similar attributes.

2- Differentiation is a strategy aimed at producing products and services considered unique industry-wide and directed at consumers who are relatively price-insensitive.

3- Low-cost focus strategy offers products or services to a small range of customers at the lowest price available on the market. A best-value focus strategy offers products or services to a small range of customers at the best price-value available on the market.

What is strategic planning?

Strategic planning is used to set an organization’s goal and priorities, focus its energy and resources on achieving these goals, and ensure that an organization’s employees are working in the same direction towards achieving the same goals. Strategic planning can be considered quite challenging for both small or large organizations. To achieve the goal of planning and implementing the the strategy; some choose an in-house team of strategists, others rely on external consultants

However, some organizations skip the whole process of strategic planning which is the worst.

“This book will help readers think of IT as more than a tool, and explains how it can be used as a fundamental element of strategy formulation and implementation”, says Dr. Walters. Research results on specific market enhancements, information management for decision making, inter-organizational efficiencies, the importance of maintaining crucial relationships, and broader societal and global ramifications تداعيات مجتمعية وعالمية أوسع are presented and the book encourages continued deliberate cross-fertilization in these critical research areas at a very strategic point in history.
