It is a plan of action and managerial decisions which measure the future growth and long term performance of any organization or business. The term strategic management originated from the army which used strategies in wars. So the word strategic means something that is done cleverly. Strategic management is used in business to build up the competitive edge against any competition. Many successful businesses use competitive advantage in order to lead the market or to come at the top. So this is used very commonly today. It links the management functions in a way that brings the desired results.

Strategic management gives a business specific thoughts to overcome current problems and to look to the future. The basic purpose of strategic management is to foresee business value in the future, to eliminate the possible risks in the environment, and to look for the changing markets trends. Simple management and strategic management are different. Generally the manager does not look for future outcomes when dealing with simple management. They just deal in to day to day management but strategic management deals with the future consequences. Now the purpose of strategic management is not only profit making but it involves the entire sector which requires special attention.
