STAGE 01 – CORPORATE VALUES
The place to begin any strategic planning process is with corporate values. Every firm has a set of core values that are usually

put in place when a company is founded. Often, these values are well-articulated, documented and fully-integrated into the firm’s culture. Even if a firm’s values aren’t documented, they exist and will require identification as part of this process. During this stage, you’ll examine your core values to understand how they should influence the development of your marketing strategy.
