The strategic process control is the process of monitoring whether the various strategies adopted by an organization are matching the internal and the external environments. This enables the managers to come up with company’s programs based on a critical long term perspective. The process involves a detailed analysis of the company’s objectives and the possibility of maximizing them to market opportunities and strengths.
There are four types of strategic process control namely; premise control, implementation control, strategic surveillance and special alert control. All these are designed in a proper way to make sure that all the major areas in the business are controlled. As a result, managers are able to determine areas which require a corrective action to achieve the objectives.
Regardless of the type of control system required, an organization may decide to use a six-step-feedback model control. The steps are; determining what to control, setting the control standards, measuring the performance, comparing how the performance to the planned standards, determining the causes of the deviation and finally taking the corrective action.
However, it is important to set the right strategy with realistic objectives to prevent deviations which may affect the performance of the business. Consider ideas above and for sure, you will succeed in your business.
