ABSTRACT
This paper reports on an empirical study of 46 organizations that looked at the contributions of strategic planning systems. The results indicate that strategic planning systems provide considerable perceived contributions to the organization. Of major importance are the awareness of strengths, weaknesses, and problems than can affect the organization. Other significant contributions are the availability of information, the ease of communication within the organization, and an increase in profits and growth of the firm. In addition, size makes a difference. The largest organizations indicated a stronger level of contributions than did the smallest organizations on specific contribution variables as well as on the total effect.
