Sustainability

To successfully chart the firm’s future, management must know where the firm is at present, have a view of where it ought to be headed and recognize the time required to shift to a new direction.

For STANLIB Swaziland to continue maximizing on opportunities and tackling challenges as they arise, it is imperative to chart the way forward through a strategic plan. A sound plan should:

  • Serve as a framework for decision-making in the organization,
  • Provide a basis for more detailed planning,
  • Explain the business to others in order to inform, motivate and involve,
  • Assist in benchmarking and performance monitoring
  • Lower the resistance of management to change as it clearly defines where the firm is and where it seeks to be in the foreseeable future, and
  • Stimulate change and become a building block.
