Abstract

Strategic planning plays an important role in helping the organization to achieve success. Efficiency and effectiveness of strategic planning can be improved by using information technology that speed up the process. Although quite a number of softwares exist in strategic planning, none of them is comprehensive enough especially in the area of assessment in strategic planning. Assessment is an initial part to recognize the current position of an organization and situational analysis is used to generate conclusions. These conclusions are needed in planning the business objectives. Therefore, this research developed a simulation model and assessment software system that represents the actual working procedures and assessment process of strategic planning. Two analytical methods, Strength, Weakness, Opportunity and Threat (SWOT) Matrix and Strategic Position and Action Evaluation (SPACE) Matrix, are used in the model and system. Both matrixes enable users to make selection of attributes and place weight/rating based on their organization current situations. Calculations and matching suggest the most appropriate strategy that an organization should implement to gain success in strategic planning. This research tests the model and system, collects the relevant data, analyze it and produce results that conclude what managers do in making analysis and conclusions in assessment. Usability testing is carried out to test the usability of the system from the aspect of usefulness, effectiveness, leamability and likability.
