Criminal Justice Paper on Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning


This module has illustratively discussed the overlooked issues in strategic planning. It spells out ultimate importance of recognizing the interconnectivity of all subsystems at the management level in justice organizations. This underscores the inevitable interdependence of the subsystems for the organization to register success. The organization that has an understanding of this concept is better placed at coming up with a comprehensive strategic plan. This is because the decision-making body of the organization will make decisions from an informed choice, therefore, taking the best available alternatives. In addition, giving the strategic plan a macro view increases the chances of success of the organization starting from the individual.


The material of engagement is about strategic planning and its importance in managing and effecting success in security organizations. The material, in addition, tries to explain that some decisions might seem unrealistic because of factors affecting other subsystems. This, despite the unpopularity of the decision, calls for complete allegiance by the junior personnel. Furthermore, it illustrates how the malfunctioning of a single subsystem spells doom to the success of the whole organization. Therefore, management in justice organizations must learn to interrelate decisions to increase the success levels of every subsystem no matter the difference of duties.


Strategic planning in daily life ranges from effective management of time to finances. In the case of a security job, the module helps in creating an understanding of the decisions made by the bosses. The decisions made by the bosses at some points never make sense to this particular job description. However, the understanding of the bigger picture helps in renewing commitment in effecting change. This is because of the knowledge that the decisions aim at effecting success in every department of security. The unit module helps in redirecting the energy often wasted at tackling issues in a reactive way to more productive use. Therefore, it goes a long way in effecting change at the workplace from an individual level.
