ENGLISH ABSTRACT: With each passing year and the intensification of competition, strategic management becomes more important. In an ever-changing business environment, management, and especially strategic management, becomes increasingly crucial. This empirical study attempts to conduct a literature study of strategic management in order to develop a strategic planning model. A simplified model is proposed as a framework on which a practical application can be made. Boland PKS, a division of the Board of Executors, has been elected as the organisation to whose strategic management the model will be applied. Boland PKS will be applied to the model in an effort to accept or reject the following statement of the problem: The author is of the opinion that strategic planning is not being applied in Boland PKS.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Jaarliks toenemende kompetisie maak strategiese bestuur toenemend belangrik in hedendaagse besigheid. In 'n snel-veranderende wêreld word bestuur, en veral strategiese bestuur, kardinaal. Hierdie empiriese studie poog om 'n literatuur studie in strategiese bestuur te doen ten einde 'n strategiese beplanningsmodel te ontwikkel. 'n Eenvoudige model word dan voorgestel as 'n verwysingsraamwerk vir die praktiese toepassing van die model. Boland PKS, 'n afdeling van die "Board of Executors", is gekies as die organisasie waarop die model toegepas sal word. Die model sal op Boland PKS toegepas word in a poging om die volgende probleemstelling te aanvaar of te verwerp: " Die skrywer is van mening dat Boland PKS nie strategiese beplanning toepas nie."
