 1. Developing the position of strategic planning in the Deputy Ministry for Financial Supervision and Treasury Affairs

All organizations, including government agencies, are in a turbulent and variable technological, cultural and social environment, requiring compatibility and interaction with it. In other words, an organization cannot be self-sufficient and isolated from its surroundings to continue his social life.

 2. Objectives and tasks of Strategic Management Council and Secretariat

 3. The position of executive managers in the implementation of the Strategic Plan

Strategic planning is a programming method that can be challenged over time. The necessary for correct formulation and implementation of the planning is the common belief of all employees in an organization, especially senior managers of the organization. Managers with strategic thinking and belief have a better understanding of the strategic planning and will function effectively and it can be said strategic thinking is considered as a complement to strategic plan. In the Deputy Ministry for Financial Supervision and Treasury Affairs, senior managers are members of the Strategic Management Council.

 4. The impact of strategic planning on the performance of Deputy Ministry

Strategic planning requires an understanding of the current situation in terms of internal and external factors, combined with a comprehensive view of organizational goals, which would be possible via collecting, updating and analyzing information with an organizational view, and strategic planning is an appropriate sample to do so.

Strategic planning is an art and science of formulating, implementing and evaluating decisions that will enable the organization to achieve its long-term goals.
