Abstract

In a study of chief executive officers at 65 provincially controlled corporations in Canada, it was discovered that most of the companies in the sample had set up formal planning systems but were not very satisfied with their outputs. This was shown to be due to the reasons for the establishment of such systems and the attitudes towards them. This article presents a set of recommendations on how to improve strategic planning at state-owned enterprises while taking into consideration their particular characteristics and constraints.
